THE SOCIETY'S BADGE. 




HE badge adopted by the Board of 
Trustees at their meeting March 30, 
1887, consists of a facsimile of the 
" Beggars' Badge " first used in 1566 
by a company of noblemen of the Netherhinds, 
who, under the leadership of Brederode, had 
banded themselves together to " protest against the 
Inquisition and other innovations which the King, 
Piiilip II, proposed to introduce into Holland." 

" It shows on its face the armed bust of Philip 
II, of Spain, with the first half of the motto, " C7i 
tout fiddles au roi" [in all things faithful to the 
King], and on the reverse two wallets between the 
straps of which are two hands joined, with the 
remainder of the motto, " jiisqucs porter la bcsace" 
[even to the bearing of the beggar's wallet], to- 
gether with the date, 1566. Attached to the medals 
are two porringers and a gourd or bottle." 

The medals, in silver, at si.x dollars each, and in 
gold at twenty-eight dollars can be obtained of Tif- 
fany and Co., on orders from the Secretary of the 
society. 



THE ROSETTE OR BUTTON. 

At the annual meeting of the society, April 6, 
1897, the society adopted a rosette or button, to be 
worn on occasions when the wearing of the other 
insignia might be deemed inappropriate. 

This consists of a shield of gold bearing the Lion 
of Holland in red enamel. Members can obtain 
them of the Bailey, Banks and Biddle Co., corner 
of Chestnut and 12th Streets, Philadelphia, Pa., in 
silver gilt at one dollar each, or in 14 k. gold at two 
dollars and seventy-five cents each. 





INAUGURATION OF QUEEN 
WILHELMINA. 




N August 31, 1898, the young Queen 
of the Netherlands, Wilhelmina, at- 
tained the age of eighteen years, and 
the regency of her mother, the Queen 
Dowager Emma, ended. The cere- 
monies attendant upon the Queen's taking the oath 
of office began in Amsterdam, September 6, 1898, 
and were observed with every manifestation of loy- 
alty and affection on the part of her loving subjects. 
The Trustees appointed a committee, consisting 
of Messrs. Tunis G. Bergen, Robert B. Roosevelt, 
and D. B. St. John Roosa, to prepare an address 
to the Queen on behalf of the Holland Society. 

This address was engrossed and illuminated by 
Tiffany & Co., on sheets of vellum, signed by the 
officers of the Society, and bound in an elegant album 
of blue leather lined with white silk on which was 
a gold badge of the Society. The box containing 
it was made of highly polished dark birdseye maple 
lined with orange silk with an ornamental gold plate 
bearing the name 



" HER MAJESTY WILUELMINA. 

The address read as follows : 

Her Majesty Wilhelmina, Queen of the Nether- 
lands, Princess of Orange-Nassau : 

The Holland Society of New York, in the 
United States of America, with profound respect, 
beg your Majesty's gracious permission to pre- 
sent our felicitations on the occasion of the 
coronation. 

Americans and citizens of another country far 
beyond the boundaries of the Netherlands, but de- 
scendants in the male line of the men who founded 
the New Netherlands more than two and one half 
centuries ago, we would offer our tribute of rev- 
erence and affection. Although nine generations 
and more have passed away since our fathers settled 
on these shores, and we speak another language, and 
our Dutch blood has become so mingled with the 
blood of other nations as to make us Americans of 
to-day, we still preserve the names which attest our 
lineage, and are proud of that part of our ancestry 
which is Dutch, and cherish in our hearts those 
qualities which distinguish the men and women of 
the Netherlands. 

Gracious Queen and Princess of that heroic house 
which excites our loyal admiration ! We have 
learned to know, honor, and love those qualities of 
womanhood which adorn your Royal person and 
make your Majesty so eminently fitted in mind and 
heart to reign over the land of our ancestors. 

We pray that God will ever have your Majesty 
in His Holy keeping, and cause your reign to be a 
long and happy one in the hearts of the people of 
that land whence our forefathers came, and whose 
names and deeds are ever held by us in fondest 
memory.

A reply was duly received from the Minister of 
Foreign Affairs, a translation of which follows : 

Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 
Section A. S. 
Number 10445. 

The Hague, September 2S, iSgS. 

On September 20, 1898, Her Majesty the Queen, 
at a solemn audience, accepted the collective 
addresses of homage presented to Her Majesty, on 
the occasion of her majority and accession to the 



throne, by Netherland Societies abroad and by 
foreign corporations, and particularly also that of 
your Society. 

A report of the ceremony appears in the Staa/s- 
Courant [the State Gazette] of September 25, 
1898, Number 224, a copy of which you will find 
herewith enclosed. 

In compliance with the royal mandate announced 
at the end of said report, I have the honor to fulfil 
the pleasant task, assigned to me, of transmitting 
to your Society the thanks of Her Majesty for the 
proof of your afTection and attachment, which Her 
Majesty has received with special delight. 

The audience lasted over three quarters of an 
hour, and while Her Majesty was examining the 
addresses she was agreeably surprised and touched 
by all the testimonials of respectful sympathy. 
The Minister of Foreign Affairs, 

W. H. DE Beaufort. 
To The Holland Society of New York, 
348 Broadway. 

The following cablegram was also forwarded : 

To His Excellency, Minister of Foj-eign Affairs, 
The Hague, Netherlands : 

The Albany Branch of The ;' Holland Society 
desires to express their congratulations upon the 
inauguration of Queen Wilhelmina. 
A. Vander Veer, M.D., 
Vice-Prcside7it, 

Knight of Orange-Nassau. 

August 31, 189S. 



The "Wilhelmus" 



The Wilhelmus is the grand national hymn of the Hoilancl- 
ers, and ff)r more than tliree hundred years it has held undis- 
puted sway in the national heart. It was written by Marnix 
St. Aldegonde — " the right-liand " of William tlie Silent— at a 
time when indeiiendence was not dreamed of. Thus the illus- 
trious founder of the Dutch Republic: is represented as boast- 
ing of his German blood and of his loyalty to his sovereign, 
the King of Spain, whose acts, however, he repudiates, even 
at the cost of much blood and treasure. This song is there- 
fore manifestly unsuited to the history and the genius of the 
free Netherlands. Its grand, organ-like music, however, has 
endeared it to the people, and has made it immortal. The 
words are simple, almost crude, and are chiefly important as a 
reminder of the past— of the day of small beginnings, when 
the battle for justice had just Ijeen begun, when the hope of 
jiolitical freedom was yet unborn. During the recent corona- 
tion festivities the Willidnius was sung throughout the length 
and breadth of the land ; one heard its magnificent strains 
every hour in the day ; and surely there was every reason then 
to make it popular. — Translator.

Let all who would live rightly 

Pray God both day and night 
That strength he will yet give me 

To help you in your plight. 



My life and m)' possessions 

I have not spared for you, 
My brothers, knights distinguished, 

Have shown themselves as true ; 
Count Adolf was left lying 

In Friesland's bloody fray; 
His soul in realms eternal 

Waits for the judgment day. 



15 I call God as my Witness 

Upon His mighty seat 
That ever I did honor 

My sovereign as was meet. 
But Him, the Lord Majestic, 

Who rules with boundless sway 
I strove with righteous fervor 

First ever to obev. 



Sci>it.niljcr i2tli, 1898,.! siiciial I hanksgiving service was 
held in the Knglish Reformed Church at Amsterdam, at which 
the Rev. Dr. W. Elliot Griffis delivered an address iiiion 
■'God's Providence in Dutch and American History," and a 
closing hymn was sung to the tune of U'illielmtis of which the 
words are as follows ; 

" Of Nassau and Orania 

A true Dutch princess she ; 
The crown of trusty Holland 

Long on her head may be ! 
Our country she will guard it 

With firm and faithful hand ; 
O (ic)d, we humbly pray Thee 

'I'o shield our (,)ueen and Land. 

" Our faith in Ood ne'er faileth : 

As in the days gone by. 
His i'roviilence prevaileth ; 

He listeneth to our cry. 
O Gentle Queen, to guard thee. 

Our lives, our all, we '11 yield ; 
For us the Nassau princes 

Died on the battlefield. 

" We beg of God to grant iier 

.\ long and ha])py reign : 
That He her Guide and Helper 

Forexer will remain. 
When troubles e'er assail her, 

He Thou, O Lord, her Shield! 
Against oppression ever 

Mav she her sceiitre wield. 

" To (iod, the Lord of I'ower, 

We trust our Queen and Land, 
Who, in the dinger's hour. 

Will guar<l both with strong hand. 
Of Nassau and Orania 

A true Dutch princess she ; 
The Queen of trusty Holland 

Her people's pride shall be." 





POETIC TRIBUTES TO QUEEN 
WILHELMINA. 

^HE inauguration of the Queen of the 
Netherlands called forth two poetic 
tributes worthy of preservation in the 
Year Book. One is written, in Eng- 
lish, by the popular Dutch romanti- 
cist, " Maarten Maartens" (J. M. W. Van der 
Poortere Schwartz), and the other by an American 
writer. Dr. John Williamson Palmer, who has a 
long and meritorious record in American literature, 
antedating Bret Harte in the field of California 
romance, and having been closely identified with 
The Atlantic Monthly in the early days when 
Lowell occupied the editorial tripod. 

The Dutch romanticist writes as follows : 



Queen of the lowlands by the Northern Sea, 
Where mists hang cold and water-wastes make moan, 
With steadfast eyes uplifted to thy throne, 
We, thine own people, every heart thine own, 
Sovereign, we claim the right of loyalty ! 

Child of the lowlands by the Northern Sea, 
Blood of our blood, and one with us, as we 
Are one in thee, 

5 



Through all the splendid changes of our stor>' 

Still one with us in heritage of glory. 

Queen because we are free — 

As we are free because thy fathers taught us, 

Trusting in God, tho' pope or prince distraught us, 

To live and die for liberty ! 

Queen of these lowlands by the Northern Sea, 
Queen o'er the sun-filled islands'of the East, 
We call to thine imperial feast 
Thy subject-lords, our conquest, — we, thejeast 
Of numbered nations, but the greater we 
For that our weakness held the world in fee 
From Christ our Prince and Priest. 

Queen, unto whom the conquerors of the sea, 

With brow unhumbled, bent a faithful knee. 

Thine is the might I 

Thine be our service, that the world may see, 

And glory in the sight, that we 

Are lords and servants, like to thee, 

By right of doing right ! 

Dr. Palmer's poem, entitled " Oranje Boven " 
("Up with the Orange"), is published in 
Literahire (September 3d) : 

Said the Sea to the Dutchman, " Ho, make way ! 

For the march of the Flood is mine. 
Shall the bar of thine arm my coursers stay 

In the charge of my whelming brine ?" 
To the Sea said the Dutchman, " Ho, stand back ! 

1 bide for the dole and fee. 
To the hands that serve and the loins that lack. 

And a hail to the Strong and Free. 
In the might of the Lord of the Deep I stand, and I set His 
bounds to Thee. 

" A bound in the Dike, and a mete in the Dune, 

And a stay in the stout Sea-wall. 
In the swing of my spade is the eagle's rune, 

Tho' the Norland ravens squall. 



And the silt shall flow and the clod shall grow, 

From Zealand to Zuyder Zee ; 
And a man shall a freeman's foothold know, 
Where the arm of a man is free ; 
For the lord of the Dutchman's land, the lord of the Dutchman's 
love shall be. 

" Flambeau and falchion, shackle and rack, 

In the lust of a ' Holy ' hate 
No glut of carnage, rapine and sack, 

Nor a Thousand Fears can sate. 
No tear for ruth, and no shudder for shame. 

No Christ for the brand and the pike ; 
Only the rage of the Beggars' claim, 

And the roar of the cloven dike ; 
Only the arm of the Lord upheaved, and the sword of the 
Lord to strike." 

Said the Sea, "O Nederland ! Alone ' 

You battle against the stars. 
For Brill's hoarse cry and Alkmaar's groan 

I storm at your stubborn bars. 
In Heiligerlee your Rachels weep. 

In Leyden your children die ; 
Death unto Life, Deep unto Deep ! 

And my tides leap at the cry. 
Set wide your gates to my hosts, and sound your pealing 
trumpets high ! " 

" Oranje Boven ! "—Fate is mute. 

And the silent soul is lord. 
" Oranje Boven ! " — Trump and lute 

Wait on the grim, dumb sword. 
When the brand is cold, and the blade is rust, 

And the gyve and the rack are shows, 
When the bones of the Brave enrich the dust 

Where a Leyden garden grows, 
Then the organ swell of the Sea shall tell how Nederland uprose. 

On Yssel's flanks, with thrifty sails. 

The windmills churn the air, 
Where erst a Viking's galley rails 

Their bossed shields laid bare. 



8 



I dream that the high-beaked triremes sweep 

A path for the hordes of Rome, 
As I rock in a fisher's boat, asleep, 
In the lea of a hedger's home, 
While the bells are chiming a Psalm of Rest from storied tower 
and dome. 

AndjThou, O fairest flower of Peace, 

Child of a happy star ! 
Glories, and guerdons of increase 

Wreathe thy ancestral Lar. 
While Righteousness is thine array, 

And on thy shield Renown, 
Honor shall celebrate thy day, 

And Law salute thy crown, 
While grass shall grow and water flow, and the ships sail up 
and down. 





INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS OF HIS- 
TORY AT THE HAGUE. 

N International Congress of History 
was held at The Hague in Septem- 
ber, 189S. 

Our Society was invited to send 
delegates to represent it, and Judge 
Charles H. Truax and General Egbert L. Viele 
were duly accredited as such delegates. They 
attended the sittings, a brief report of which is 
given in the following letter from General Viele : 




London, September 17, 189S. 



Theo. M. Banta, Esq., 
Sec. Holland Society. 



My Dear Sir : — I beg leave to inform you that in 
accordance with the appointment of the Trustees 
of the Society, I attended the sessions of the 
International Congress of History, convened at 
The Hague on the ist, 2d, 3d, and 4th of this 
month, as a member of the same. My colleague, 
Judge Truax, was also present. There were rep- 
resentatives from nearly all the nationalities, in- 
cluding those of the Orient. A deep interest was 
manifested in the proceedings, not only by the 
members of the Congress, but the citizens of 



lO 

Holland, and the diplomatic representatives to 
that country. When the proceedings are pub- 
lished a copy will be filed with the Archives of 
The Holland Society, and it will be found that a 
mass of unique and valuable information will be 
contained in the published volume. 

At the final session of the Congress, I was in- 
vited, as a representative of The Holland Society, 
to address the august assemblage, composed as it 
was of many distinguished individuals from all 
parts of the world. I endeavored, to the best of 
m)- ability, to speak, for our Society and our State 
and City of New York, whose archives are so rich 
in the early history of American civiPization. The 
members of the Congress were hospitably and 
generously entertained by the citizens of our 
fatherland and especially by the officers of state. 
A closure banquet ended this most interesting 
event, and the splendid spectacle of the coronation 
of the young Queen immediately followed. All 
Holland was C7i fete for this great national event. 
Every street in every town and city was profusely 
decorated as for a great public festival. Endless 
festoons and garlands of flowers by day, and end- 
less streams of electric lights by night testified to 
the unbounded joy of the people. The celebra- 
tion was not confined to the cities. The remotest 
districts participated. The national flag waved 
over the polders everywhere, and from the long 
arms of every windmill orange streamers and 
orange banners were to be seen. All the children 
wore orancre sashes, and all the women orantre 
ribbons. 

This youthful scion of the House of Orange 
ascended her democratic throne with all the grace 
and dignity that became the ruler of the freest 
people on earth, and, in a manner worthy of her 
great progeniture, swore to defend the rights of 
her people, and live only for their happiness and 
well-being. The unqualified devotion exhibited 
by all the people of all ranks and positions was 



1 1 



both touching and sublime. Underneath it all 
was the memory of a great past, and the pride of an 
heroic race which fondly cherishes the deeds of an 
illustrious ancestry, as a conservative force that 
has so long preserved and will continue to pre- 
serve the liberties of the whole people, and the 
honor of the state. 

I remain, very truly yours, 

Egbert L. Viele.

THE GENERAL DUTCH ALLIANCE. 




HE following communication was re- 
ceived by the Secretary in the sum- 
mer of 1898 : 



Dordrecht, December 23, 1897. 

To the Meinbers of The Holland Society of New 

York : 
Gentlemen : 

A voice from Holland — 

An appeal to your attachment to your ancestral 
land. 

Last August, at a meeting of the 24th Netherland 
Literary Congress (Nederlandsch Taal-en Letter- 
kundig Congres), held at Dordrecht, it was de- 
cided that a General Dutch Association should be 
founded. 

The chief object of the Association will be the 
strengthening of the feeling of solidarity between 
the various members of our race, who, however 
divided politically and geographically, have an equal 
interest in cherishing their mother tongue and in 
upholding the traditions of a glorious past. 

We know that you, citizens of the United States 
and members of The Holland Society, keep in honor 
not a few of those traditions, and therefore we hope 

14 



'5 

that you will join us in our endeavors to promote 
the feelings of sympathy already existing between 
the Netherlands and the great Republic on the 
other side of the Atlantic. 

The Association will be divided into three sec- 
tions : Holland, Belgium, and South Africa. To 
the first section will belong the Dutch Colonies, as 
well as people of Holland-Dutch nationality living 
in various countries of Asia, America, and Africa. 

The Association will probably be organized in 
May, '98, starting with some two thousand mem- 
bers in every part of the world, of whose support 
we are already assured. 

When " Het Algemeen Nederlandsch Verbond" 
is formed, the assurance that the members of The 
Holland Society will have expressed their sym- 
pathy with it, will highly rejoice us, as a proof that 
the descendants of the same ancestors, though 
separated by nationality and ocean, do not forget 
each other. 

Respectfully and sympathetically, 
H. Kern, 
Professor in Leiden University, 

Presidefii. 
H. J. KlEWIET DE JONGE, Ph.D., 

Secretary. 

Representing the above-mentioned Association, 
Dr. Abraham Kuyper, of Amsterdam, visited this 
country. He is a member of the States-General of 
the Netherlands, and is recognized as one of the 
ablest and most eloquent statesmen of the king- 
dom. He delivered a course of lectures at Prince- 
ton University and subsequently went West in the 
interest of the Dutch Alliance. 

On Friday, November 25th, 1898, Warner Van 
Norden, Esq., gave an elegant dinner at the Met- 
ropolitan Club in honor of Dr. Kuyper, which was 



i6 

attended by the follo\vin<^ named gentlemen in 
addition to the special guest of the evening : Hon. 
Robert B. Roosevelt, Tunis G. Bergen, Eugene 
Van Schaick, Judge Geo. M. Van Hoesen, Theo- 
dore M. Banta, Gen. Egbert L. Viele, Judge 
Augustus Van Wyck, J. \V. Vrooman, J. B. Van 
Woert, Frank Hasbrouck, Rev. A. E. Kittredge, 
D.D., S. D. Coykendall, Dr. D. B. St. John Roosa, 
Rev. E. B. Coe, D.D. 

Dr. Kuyper made a very interesting address on 
affairs in Holland, and the objects of the General 
Dutch Alliance. 

A committee, consisting of Judge Augustus Van 
Wyck, Warner Van Norden, and Samuel D. Coy- 
kendall, was appointed to confer with Dr. Kuyper 
and others in reference to the subject he had brought 
to our notice. This Conference was held at the 
Fifth Avenue Hotel, where the Constitution of the 
General Dutch Alliance was presented and ap- 
proved, and members of the Governing Board for 
New York and vicinity were named. These names 
appear in Article IV. of the Constitution, which is 
here appended.

LECTURES ON DUTCH LITERATURE. 




11 N the Year Book for 1897 there ap- 
peared an article by Prof. William 
H. Carpenter, of the Department of 
Germanic Languages in Columbia 
University, advocating the study in 
the University of the language and literature of 
Holland. In 1898 Mr. Leonard Charles Van 
Noppen, a native of Holland but a resident of the 
United States from early childhood and a graduate 
of the University of North Carolina, published his 
translation of Vondel's Lucifer, and dedicated it to 
The Holland Society of New York. The great 
drama of the greatest of Dutch poets was first 
published in Holland in 1654, thirteen years before 
Milton wrote his Paradise Lost, and not a few 
writers have claimed that Milton, who had studied 
Dutch, derived the inspiration for his epic from the 
earlier writer of the Netherlands. Vondel's Luci- 
fer had never before been translated into English 
and so for the first time the mass of the English- 
speaking public have had the opportunity to be- 
come familiar with the work. 

Professor Carpenter arranged for a course of 



23 

lectures in Columbia University by Mr. Van Nop- 
pen upon Dutch literature, with the co-operation 
and under the auspices of The Holland Society. 
The lectures were six in number and were given 
weekly at Schermerhorn Hall in the University. 
The subjects were : 

January 4, 1899. Early Dutch Literature. 

II, " The Augustan Age of Holland. 

18, " Vondel, the Man and Poet. 

25, " Vondel's Lticifer. 

February 1, " From Antonides to the School 

of Heiloo. 

8, " The Dutch Poets of To-Day. 

At the last dinner of our Society President Seth 
Low spoke as follows of these lectures : 

" Before I speak to the toast which has been assigned to 
me, may I venture to say a single word as the President of 
Columbia University in recognition of the course of lectures 
recently established by this Society upon Dutch literature and 
which are now being delivered at Columbia. I have been 
told, how accurately I do not know, that it is the first course 
of lectures upon Dutch literature specifically which has ever 
been delivered in the United States. If so it would indicate 
that the Dutchmen of New Amsterdam, even if they are slow 
in some things, are at least sure, and I venture to express the 
hope that this union between the University and The Holland 
Society in the effort to promote some acquaintance in this city 
with the literature of old Holland may be continued, and that 
the results of it may be advantageous to the city. I want to 
express on behalf of the University our appreciation of your 
co-operation, and to thank you one and all for making this 
course of lectures possible." 

The following letter of Prof. Carpenter is of 
interest : 



24 

Ki.bruarj' lo, iSgg. 

Theodore M. Banta, Esq., 

Secretary, Holland Society. 

Dear Mr. Banta: — The Holland Society lec- 
tures on Dutch literature were concluded, as you 
know, on the 8th inst., and at the end call, per- 
haps, for a word or two in retrospection. 

The course has plainly been a success. In order 
to apply the term " successful " to a series of popu- 
lar lectures, like the present, two elements are 
fundamentally necessary : good lectures, and an 
appreciative audience. We have had both. Mr. 
Van Noppen, although he had by no means an easy 
task, since he was obliged to cover in six lectures 
the whole broad field of Dutch literature, if only in 
outline, from the earliest beginnings down to the 
present time, did his work extremely well. Those 
who have heard the lectures from the beginning to 
the end of the course have a comprehensive idea 
of the whole development of literature in the Neth- 
erlands, and they have also no little knowledge of 
the great lights that have appeared from time to 
time above the general horizon. The audience 
numbered, by actual count, for the whole course, 
some five hundred admissions, which, considering 
the time of year, the distance that it meant to many 
who are interested in the subject, and its generally 
unfamiliar nature, is a thoroughly satisfactory re- 
sult. The audiences of the several lectures were 
plainly interested, and many people attended the 
course throughout. 

I think, accordingly, that we may be said to 
have made a satisfactory beginning. It is, of 
course, no more than that, for, as I have already 
indicated, it is impossible to harvest such a fruit- 
ful field as is this of Dutch literature, in such a 
short space of time. 

That we have made such an auspicious begin- 
ning, however, is, I take it, a matter for mutual 
congratulation : for you in that you have exerted 
an unmistakable influence in accordance with the 



25 

avowed aims of The Holland Society, and for us in 
that we have extended in a most legitimate direc- 
tion our influence as an educational force in the 
community. 

I hope most sincerely that we may work to- 
gether in the future for what is surely a good 
cause, from whatever aspect it is viewed. We 
should dislike, here at the University, to have this 
first successful attempt a mere sporadic effort to 
pass away and be forgotten, as speedily would be 
the case if it were not followed up in the future 
by more work along similar lines. 

There has been of late years a great and increas- 
ing interest in this whole subject of our Dutch begin- 
nings, and their relations and results. To realize 
the motto of The Holland Society, Eindelijk luordt 
een Spruit een Boom, we should all of us combine 
to make this interest even greater. 
Yours very truly, 

Wm. H. Carpenter, 

Prof. Germanic Philology.

January i i, 1S99, the Secretary avails 

himself of the introduction to the report in one of 

the New York newspapers : 

"Once every year the descendants of the early settlers in 
New Amsterdam — The Holland Society, they call themselves — 
meet to eat, drink, and enjoy themselves, and incidentally to 
sing the praises of their forefathers. But, while they talk with 
all reverence of the glories of their forbears, the members of 
The Holland Society fail to emulate them in at least one respect. 
The early Hollanders in this country were models of frugality 
and economy. But not so the Hollanders of to-day in this 
city. Last night's dinner, the fourteenth annual festival 
which the Society has held, was marked with the brilliant 
surroundings and generous hospitality that have made so con- 
spicuous the previous gatherings of the members. Some 
attempt was made to give some native semblance to the dinner 
by printing the menu in the Dutch language. The " Spijs- 
kaart " — that's Dutch for menu — contained more than a 
dozen courses, and it may lie said at once that they all tasted 
better than they looked — in print. But, for those who had 
forgotten their mother tongue, there was one consolation. The 
wine list was printed in English. 

" Altogether, there were more than four hundred members

present. Popular airs of the day by a band enlivened the pro- 
ceedings, and the brightness of the scene was considerably 
enhanced by the many-colored dresses of the women, who 
filled the gallery. 

" The banner of the Society was suspended behind the 
President's chair, and hanging from the balcony where the 
band discoursed Dutch music was an immense orange flag 
brought from Holland for the Society. 

" The big banquet hall was profusely draped with the flags 
of Holland, mingled with the American National colors. The 
members and guests wore neckties of orange, in honor of the 
occasion ; the guest table was covered with chrysanthemums of 
the Dutch colors, and the women who thronged the galleries 
carried out the general color scheme with bright orange ribbons. 
The orchestra helped to make a real Dutch evening of it by 
such airs as "Wilhelmus van Nassauwen," and " Wien 
Neerlandsch Bloed." 

The President of the Society, Mayor Robert A. 
Van Wyck, not being able to be present, his place 
was occupied by the Vice-President for New 
York, Tunis G. Bergen. With him were seated 
invited guests, representatives of sister societies, 
and former Presidents of The Holland Society, as 
follows :

The President of the Society, Hon. Robert A. 
Van Wyck, Mayor of the city, not being present, 
the Vice-President for New York, Mr. Tunis G. 
Bergen, presided. Grace was offered by Rev. Dr. 
Evert Van Slyke, of Brooklyn. 

The pipes for the occasion were imported by the 



Society from Gouda, Netherlands, in orange- 
colored boxes, the bowls presenting the likeness of 
Queen Willielmina. Dutch chocolate in boxes in 
imitation of Delftware embellished with copies of 
noted Dutch pictures was at each plate, and special 
souvenirs of Dutch manufacture were given to all 
the guests on the dais. 

The balconies were occupied during the speech- 
making by a score or two of ladies, among whom 
were Mrs. Eugene A. Hoffman, Directress-General 
of the Daughters of Holland Dames, Mrs. Tunis G. 
Bergen, Mrs. Kate Duryea, Mrs. John W. Vrooman, 
Mrs. Charles F. Roe, Mrs. Thomas L. James, Miss 
Augusta Warner Miller, Mrs. Edward \V. Scott, 
Mrs. F. P. Miller, Miss Fortescue, Miss Moulton, 
Mrs. I. Sparks-Kress, Mrs. E. McLean Haughey, 
Mrs. William J. Ives, Miss Mary Whitney, Mrs. 
James M. Van Valcn, Miss Emma F. Foster, Mrs. 
(Captain) Sage. 

At about ten o'clock, the Chairman, Mr. Bergen, 
called the assemblage to order with the historic 
gavel and said : 





WELCOME FROM VICE-PRESIDENT 
BERGEN. 




Gentlemen of the Holland Society : 

gjLEASE do not think that I am the 
Mayor of New York ; I am standing 
in his shoes but they are a mile too 
big, and I may forget myself and 
sign a few bills or veto some others, 
and then there might be a political convention 
called early to-morrow morning. 

Our President, the Mayor of the City of New 
York, has sent word that it will be impossible for 
him to be present and preside over this festival to- 
night. The burdens which fall upon that office 
are, I suppose, as heavy and onerous as those 
which fall upon any other office in the gift of the 
people. An ex-Mayor by my side (Hon. Seth 
Low) says that is true. 

The tyranny of fate has placed me here, and I 
rely upon your Dutch charity to bear with me, — set 
down for a toast, and then at the last moment 
called upon to preside. 

We meet to-night to dine and celebrate. Our 
fathers did not land upon the coast of Europe be- 
cause they had no land to land upon. So they put 

33 



34 

up their oars, jumped out of their boats, and made 
a land with their spades, and after they had made 
a land with their spades they were obliged to draw 
their swords and carve out a place in which they 
could live with liberty. Then some of them went 
over to Britain and the English called them Anglo- 
Saxons, and they liave been boasting about them 
ever since. Others came to America, landed on 
Manhattan Island, and gave up their swords ; some 
of which were turned into ploughshares with which 
they tilled the ground ; others were, of course, 
turned into pruning-hooks, with which they pruned 
the New Englanders and tried to engraft on them 
some ideas of liberty for other people. 

I am not to make a speech — I am to introduce 
the speakers. Pardon my presumption that I ven- 
ture to say anything at all. We will now proceed 
to let our souls flow. The first toast of the evening 
is the toast to the Mother Country, to which the 
Dutch Domine Behrends was to respond, but a 
telegram has just been received from him to the 
effect that he is detained at Atlantic City and can- 
not reach here in time. We have with us, how- 
ever, one who can speak for the Mother Country, 
because he represents her. He is known to us all 
because he wears the insignia of her authority. 
He was at the Queen's ceremonies, and he lived 
through them all and has come back. I beg to 
introduce Consul-General Planten, who will respond 
to the first toast of the evening, " HOLLAND, 
the Mother Country." 

" O Holland, model to thy inward greatness. 
Like little body with a mighty heart ! " 




ADDRESS OF HON. JOHN R. PLANTEN. 



Gentlemen of the Holland Society : 




VERY sincerely regret that my first 
words to you must be those of con- 
dolence with the illness of Dr. Beh- 
rends, but I am selfish enough to 
claim some of that condolence for my- 
self. I am put in his place by your Vice-President, 
who wants me to speak in Dutch, so that he, at any 
rate, shall not understand anything about it, like 
the most of you here. It certainly ought to be an 
easy matter for a native of the country to speak in 
its behalf, and it certainly would be for me if any- 
thing new could be said ; but the little powder that 
I had Mr. Bergen has taken away, so I have noth- 
ing left to speak about Holland, because he has 
suggested already what could be said, and every 
member of the Holland Society is so well posted 
on Holland history that I could not tell anything 
new about it. 

It is always very gratifying for me to be where 
Holland's name is revered, and I can assure you 
that the Holland people value verj' greatly the 

35 



36 

esteem and veneration which you hold for the 
fathers, our common ancestors, who came here and 
settled, and laid the corner-stone of the nation which 
has so largely developed. 

The past summer has been one of special interest 
to Holland. You have all heard of the little 
Queen, and on the 31st of August, although she 
had been Queen from birth, she entered upon the 
office, and it was one of the most interesting sights 
one could behold to see not only the city of Am- 
sterdam, but the whole of Holland in gay attire. 
It was a holiday for everybody, the old, the young, 
and the city of Amsterdam was decorated in every 
possible manner and in every street, — not only in 
the Fifth Avenues, but in the byways, — and every- 
body did whatever he could to make that period a 
festive one. The children were given mementos, 
and the grown persons had impressed upon their 
minds the great event which then took place, and 
which no doubt you have all read much about. 

You will pardon me if I say nothing more, be- 
cause I am not only entirely unaccustomed and un- 
prepared to speak to an audience, but I certainly 
feel embarrassed that I am substituted for a man 
who could claim your attention and hold it for 
hours where I fail for even a few moments. 

I thank you, gentlemen, for your kind indulgence. 

Dr. Van Dvkk : Gentlemen of the Holland So- 
ciety : I do not know that a more difficult task has 
ever fallen to me than that which has now devolved 
upon my shoulders, — a task of initiating an abso- 
lute revolution in the Holland Society : dethroning 
the Chairman and assuming his position. But it is 
necessary on this occasion, for you have in the 



2,7 

chair at this moment a gentleman of such unparal- 
leled and unprecedented modesty that he does 
not dare to get up and deliver his speech to you 
without being introduced. I lived with Tunis G. 
Bergen in what was at that time the city of Brook- 
lyn, now the borough of Brooklyn, and I never 
observed any inclination on his part to hide his 
light under a bushel, but it seems to have come 
upon him, and therefore I fling myself boldly into 
the breach. I do not know what his speech is, 
although it has been lying here on the table before 
me, but I say to you that you will have one of the 
greatest pleasures in your life in listening now to 
the speech of Mr. Tunis G. Bergen, who will re- 
spond to the toast to 

" WILHELMINA, Queen of the Netherlands: 
a scion of the stock of William the Silent. 
We hail her as she appears 'just above the 
horizon — glittering like the morning star, full 
of life and splendor and joy.' " 




^i## 




ADDRESS OF MR. TUNIS G. HKRGEN. 




Felloiu Descendants of the Dutch : 

AM placed in a very embarrass- 
ing position. The extraordinary re- 
marks of the gentleman who usurped 
this throne for a few moments, his 
allusions to the absence of modesty 
on my part, — and I never had enough to boast of, 
I admit, — have so affected me that I had nearly 
forgotten my toast, but I recall that it is to the 
Queen of Holland, and I approach it with hesita- 
tion. But I suppose the commands of Her Majesty 
have been laid upon me. 

The combination of a beautiful woman and a 
Dutch Dinner Committee is as alluring as it is ob- 
ligatory. The Netherlands' Queen best speaks to 
us with the tender grace and the sweet beauty of 
her portrait which adorns our spijskaart to-night ; 
and she speaks good Dutch, too, for the lines of 
her face and the light of her eyes are honest and 
true. 

But we toast the Queen to-night chiefly because 
of the recent celebration in honor of the attain- 
ment by Her Majesty of her majority. In this 

38 



39 

country of ours when a candidate for office obtains 
a majority we not only toast him sometimes, but 
we generally roast him at all times. 

We sent Her Majesty a letter a few months ago, 
you know, in honor of the recent celebration at 
The Hague, so that our Society might be repre- 
sented in memory of old times. That letter was 
resplendent with our best signatures. Some of 
our vice-presidents sent us several specimens of 
their efforts to produce a signature which would be 
not only inspiring, but symbolic of personal vir- 
tues. Being bachelors they were not in the habit 
of writing to queens. Our President, the Mayor, 
for example, cautiously approached the document, 
pen in hand, and then with great Dutch bravery 
and satisfaction subscribed his name as eagerly as 
thoueh he were about to sitrn an ordinance to 
keep all the streets of New York as clean as those 
of a Dutch town. But, of course, our rules would 
not permit us to admit more than one signature at 
a time. The imposing array of unintelligible auto- 
graphs subscribed to that letter made a sensation, 
not only at the Court but wherever penmanship is 
studied as a fine art. 

Her Majesty sent us a gracious reply, in which 
she expressed the personal delight she felt in re- 
ceiving such an exhibition of sympathy, and her 
pleasant surprise at being so warmly remembered. 
That letter came to us written in a delicate little 
hand — evidently the hand of the Clerk of the Min- 
ister of Foreign Affairs. 

The most Dutch thing about the Queen's cor- 
onation is that there was no coronation. In the 
old cathedral called the New Church, because it 
was new at the time it was built, three or four 



40 

hundred years ago, the little Queen entered in a 
way that can be done only by the most graceful of 
women, and with the greeting of the old hymn of 
"Wilhelmusvan Nassauwe,"set to the ancient music 
of 1583, recently revived, took her seat surrounded 
by her family and friends in the presence of the 
Ministers of State and States-General and officials 
from all over the land, as well as the princes and 
rulers of the Dutch colonies all over the globe, and 
the great assembly of invited guests, among whom 
were only three Americans, I believe, — the United 
States Minister, our friend Consul-General Planten, 
and Mr. John F. Praeger, of Brooklyn. There the 
youthful Queen sat, waiting — hear it, ye courtiers 
at ancient thrones, and sycophants of gorgeous 
monarchies, hear it, ye citizens of republics and 
upholders of the rights of man — waiting to be in- 
augurated. Yes, that is the official Dutch term. 
It was an inauguration, not a coronation. About 
those simple solemnities, there were no Russian 
mysteries and gorgeousness, no German pomp and 
pageantry, no pedantic mediaeval English cere- 
monies, or effete Spanish etiquette. No oil of 
anointment ran down her blushing cheeks, no 
"By the Grace of God" idea controlled the scene 
and placed the mystic diadem on brows sacred 
by divine right. No, only the grand human sim- 
plicity of the inauguration of a young woman as 
the titular Queen of a self-governing country. It 
was at once a spectacle and a lesson for mankind. 
In front of the Queen, on a table, lay the book of 
the Constitution of the United States of the Neth- 
erlands, and upon it the ancient emblems of civil 
government, the crown, the orb, and the sceptre. 
The Minister of State addressed Her Majesty and 



41 

bowed to the crown. The Queen bowed to the 
jewel. He bent again to the sceptre, and the 
Queen bowed to the bauble. With Dutch sim- 
plicity and dignity the young Queen rose to her 
feet, faced the assembly, delivered her address, and 
then took the oath to be faithful to her country's 
Constitution and true to the liberties of the people, 
as grandly as, though more gracefully than, the 
President of the United States. Then, at the close, 
with uplifted right hand, in clear, sweet tones which 
thrilled every hearer, as I am told by men who were 
present, she said : " Zoo waarlyk helpe viij God Al- 
machtig ! " (" So truly help me God Almighty ! ") 

There the Queen stood in her youth and beauty, 
courage in her face, and truth in her eyes. No fear 
there of the colonial expansion of that little coun- 
try, although aside from the people of the Neth- 
erlands 34,000,000 of colonists in various parts 
of the globe acknowledged her as their Queen. 
Think of it, Americans, now when some of us are 
trembling with apprehensions dire at the possible 
task of our being obliged to govern eight or nine 
millions of colonists in tropical islands. If you 
want courage, think of the little Netherlands with 
only some three millions of people guiding and 
governing the destinies of ten or eleven times their 
number on continental islands in distant seas, and 
reflect that for three centuries they have exercised 
this expansive sway. It was of Holland, not of 
England, that it was first said, and that by an 
Enoflish writer more than two and one half cen- 
turies ago, that the sun never sets upon the domin- 
ions of the Dutch. 

They give us a lesson in expansion which, how- 
ever, no one seems to be studying in this country 



42 

at this critical time. Here, especially through our 
newspapers, we speak only of the colonial manage- 
ment of England, or France, or Russia, and for- 
get that some Englishmen of note have compared 
the Dutch colonial system to the disadvantage 
of the English management of India. One to ten 
the little Queen of the Netherlands stands among 
her strantre colonists ; one Dutchman over ten 
men of other races. That seems to be about the 
Dutch limit. Now, if some of you careful students 
of arithmetic at this dinner (if you have n't eaten 
too much) will multiply eighty millions of peo- 
ple by ten or eleven, to sum up the Dutch limit 
of colonial courage, we should be compelled to 
sway the destinies of Europe, Asia, and Africa 
combined. 

Then as Americans we greet Her Majesty. She 
represents the country which was one of the first to 
recognize us in our struggle for independence, and 
the very first to lend us money when others held 
back and we had no security to give. We mean 
it as the highest compliment when we say Her 
Majesty is like a beautiful American girl. So we 
place her upon the throne of our American hearts ; 
and we wave in her honor the Stars and Stripes of 
the United States of .America in union with the 
flaof of the United States of the Netherlands ! 

But more seriously, descendants of the Nether- 
landers, let us toast the Queen. As we sit at this 
feast to-nicrht, the dawn is about to break on 
the coasts of Europe. The first rays of the ris- 
ing sun are beginning to color the waves of the 
cold North Sea, still as salt as when our fathers 
ploughed them with their ships, to gild the edges 
of the old dikes which our fathers made with their 



43 

spades, to illumine the old streets once wet with 
our fathers' blood, to glorify anew the place where 
noble William fell with the Beggar's Penny about 
his neck, to enter the cosy homes which our moth- 
ers first kept as models of sweetness and comfort. 
The roseate hues of the morning, those hues which 
the great Dutch painter first caught and applied to 
his immortal canvas, are about to light up again 
the dear old land, the land of Orange and of Rem- 
brandt, and to steal through the curtained windows 
of the palace. Good morning, sweet and gentle 
Queen ! Those of your kin far away in another 
land and bound by other ties salute you ! Fair 
daughter of the House we love ! May the God of 
our fathers have you in His holy keeping. 

The Chairman : Once upon a time there was 
a Princeton student who used to lecture me on 
the art of trout-fishing. He was a Dutchman and 
so he naturally took to fishing, and he afterwards 
became a fisher of men. I have understood that 
he caucrht both kinds and that the touch of his 
tongue, which you have all felt, is as keen and 
ready as the touch of his hook, which I have felt. 
I do not need to introduce this gentleman, and 
I do not introduce him. We know him — Dr. 
Henry Van Dyke, who will respond to the toast 

" NEW YORK, the city of charities ; the child of 
the Netherlands."

ADDRESS OF DR. VAN DYKE. 



Afr. P7'cside7it atid Gentlemen of the Holland Society : 




r is just fourteen years ago to-night 
that I had the pleasure of speaking 
at the first dinner of the Holland 
Society in New York City — a pleas- 
ure that I never shall forget. That 
was my first plunge into the great American athletic 
sport of after-dinner speaking. Since that time I 
have lived through a perilous life, and now I have 
sworn ofT. I swore off about three years ago, but 
the way I swore off was like the way the Connecti- 
cut deacon .swore off eating clams. He ate too 
many one day, and it made him feel very uncom- 
fortable and pious, and he thought that he would 
have recourse to prayer and he said, "O Lord, 
heal Thy servant of this grievous illness and I 
faithfully promise Thee that he will never eat any 
more clams — very few, if any. Amen ! " 

So this is one of the very few after-dinner 
speeches that my good resolutions permit me to 
make at present. The subject of my speech is one 
on which a clergyman has to speak very often, the 
subject of charity, and sometimes under very em- 

44 



45 

barrassing circumstances. There was a well-known 
preacher who had a habit of asking almost ever)'- 
body for a subscription. One day he met a rich 
but irreverent parishioner of his, and said, "Oh, 
Mr. Smith, I saw such a very fine portrait of you 
down at the portrait show." " Well," said the 
parishioner, " I suppose you asked it for a sub- 
scription." " Oh, no," said the minister, " I knew 
it was no use ; it was too much like you." 

But apart from this general embarrassment in 
speaking on the subject of charity, and the natural 
feelings of apprehension which it may arouse in 
your minds, I have had some difficulty in getting 
here to-night with this speech. In the first place, 
when I was about half-way through my prepara- 
tions Judge Van Hoesen got out a mechanic's lien 
on me because he had furnished the text. Then 
when I had practically completed it, the New 
York Herald ^ox. out an attachment on it because 
they had furnished most of the figures in regard to 
New York city charities. I escaped from that by 
saying that figures for both of us had probably 
been furnished by the very capable and accomplished 
Commissioner of Charities, Mr. John W. Keller, 
and since he held a blanket mortgage on both of us, 
it was not worth while for us to foreclose on each 
other. Finally, last night Mr. Theodore Banta 
served an injunction on me warning me that I must 
not on any account to-night touch upon the subject 
of expansion. He said there were a few fellows 
here that did not want to hear anything about 
expansion ; they only wanted to " holler," and he 
said that therefore if I touched on the subject the 
consequence would be that even the New York 
Life Insurance Company would refuse me as a bad 



46 

risk — a thing they had never done before to any 
clergyman. 

Now this injunction, I must confess, struck me 
as very curious. It is the first time in New York 
in my experience that before making an after-din- 
ner speech anybody has thought it necessary to 
"touch me down for safety." Of course, being a 
Dutchman, timidity is not one of my chronic com- 
plaints, and if there was any subject about which I 
wanted to speak to you to-night I should free my 
mind upon it, injunction or no injunction. And I 
do propose to speak to you to-niglu in favor of a 
kind of expansion which I believe in, and in which 
we all believe with all our hearts, namely, the ex- 
pansion of the germ of beneficence which was 
planted here on Manhattan Island by our Dutch 
forefathers, and has grown into the magnificent 
tree of public and private generosity which makes 
New York a leader among the world's cities in the 
glorious work of charity. 

Holland has always been famous for the wisdom, 
the constancy, and the generosity of her charities. 
From her first magistrates, in the days of William 
of Orange, she exacted a triple oath; first, to de- 
fend every man's freedom ; second, to protect 
widows, orphans, and miserable persons ; third, to 
maintain justice and truth. The Italian traveller, 
Guicciardini, in the sixteenth century, says that the 
Dutch led the world in caring for the sick, the in- 
firm, and the poor. Antl yet he adds that the 
people were so industrious and so frugal that, ex- 
cept in time of famine, there were few who needed 
charity, unless they were old or crippled. Sir Wil- 
liam Temple, coming from England, was amazed 
at the charitable institutions of the Dutch Repub- 



47 

lie. He once visited an asylum for aged sailors, 
and on his departure offered one of the inmates a 
piece of money. The old man refused, saying that 
all his wants were supplied, and he had no use for 
money. But it is very hard to stop an Englishman 
when he wants to give you anything, whether it is 
a tip or a government, and so the old man was 
finally forced to take the money ; but as soon as 
Sir William Temple's back was turned it was found 
out the next day that the old salt had given the 
money to the girl that tended the door. At the 
close of the Spanish war the city of Amsterdam 
was spending a million dollars a year in caring for 
her needy poor. 

I have taken these out of a score of illustrations 
that I might bring from history to show the glory 
of Holland as a country of charity. And I want 
you to understand that this charity in Holland is 
not a mere matter of sentiment. It is imbedded in 
the national character, and it has survived through 
all the changes of national government. The same 
generous, kindly, humane spirit that lived in those 
mail-clad warriors of William of Orange, lives to- 
day in the peaceful merchants that swear allegiance 
to the fair girl-queen Wilhelmina. Holland still 
sets an example to the world in the matter of 
charity. The great Italian traveller and writer of 
travels, De Amicis, says in his late book that there 
is no country in Europe where such copious alms 
descend from the wealthy to the needy classes, in 
proportion to the population, as in Holland. The 
present charities of Holland are really very remark- 
able. There are between three and a half and four 
million people in the country. In 1888, the latest 
date for which I could get the precise figures. 



48 

there were in Holland 1386 municipal institutions of 
charity, 3470 religious charitable societies, and 
168 private organizations, some of these being very 
large indeed, including, I think, as many as sixteen 
thousand members. The persons aidetl by charity 
in Holland in the year 1888 numbered 1 1 1,000, and 
the money distributed in charity by municipalities 
and organizations in that year was $5,600,000. 

That is a splendid record for a European 
countr}-. I wish that I might add to it a word or 
two on the fine system by which all these chari- 
table societies and all these municipal means of 
charit}' are brought together and made to report 
annually to a single office, so that charity is organ- 
ized and does not overlap. I should like to speak 
also of the laws by which beggary and vagrancy 
arc forbidden, and of the provision for immediate 
help which arises out of the law of Holland, that 
the domicile of need is to be regarded always as 
the domicile of aid — a very important provision in 
regard to the distribution of charity. 

But I have no time to dwell upon those things. 
I want you to understand that charity in Hol- 
land is not a mere matter of feeling ; it is a 
principle of social order ; it is imbedded in the 
Constitution of the United States of the Nether- 
lands that it is to be a primary and constant duty 
of government to care for the weaker members 
of the community. The idea that the blind, the 
deaf, the imbecile, the crippled, are citizens in spite 
of their misfortune, and that they have a claim upon 
the state, is a thoroughly Dutch idea. The nations 
that have had it have taken it from Holland ; and 
even to this day England has not yet quite learned 
her lesson, for there, as I understand, people of 



49 

these classes are still regarded not as having a 
claim upon the state, but as paupers, who are in 
a certain sense semi-criminals. The idea of the 
unfortunate, the crippled, the helpless, being truly 
members of the state and having a right to receive 
from the state that which shall lift them up and 
better their condition if possible and fit them 
for the exercise of the useful functions of civic 
life is a Dutch idea. That idea came from Hol- 
land into these United States and is firmly im- 
bedded here in the social order of the great 
American Republic. 

Many streams of influence have come here to 
make this country what it is — the greatest, the 
strongest, the most glorious country in the world. 
Other streams have been more copious than that 
which came from Holland, but there is not one 
strain of blood richer, warmer, nobler, more gener- 
ous than that which flowed from the Dutch Repub- 
lic into the mighty heart of the Republic of the 
United States. 

" New York, the City of Charities ! " That is the 
toast which Judge Van Hoesen wrote for me. My 
heart leaped up to respond to sentiment so serious 
and so inspiring. Let me say that if after-dinner 
speaking is to degenerate merely into the telling 
of a string of funny stories just for the sake of 
telling funny stories, I want no more of it ; but if 
it means that large-hearted citizens will come to- 
gether, and, with proper fun and merriment, listen 
also to thoughtful and earnest talk, then I for one 
recognize after-dinner speaking as a means of in- 
fluence for good from which I should not dare 
turn away. 

New York has a right to be called the City 



50 

of Charity. The first hospital (glorious name, 
— Hotcl-Dieti, " God's Hotel ") on the shores of the 
new world was founded in the city of New Amster- 
dam in 1658. The great work of prison reform 
took its practical impetus from the State of New 
York in 1797. The idea of a house of refuge, by 
which tht; little ragamuffin should be prevented 
from developing into the big ruffian, is a New 
York idea, and we had it and practised it here be- 
fore they knew anything about such a thing in Eng- 
land. The splendid work of the Children's Aid 
Society, which takes the waifs of the city out of 
the slums and sends them where they will have 
room to grow in, comes from New York, and has 
spread from New York far and wide. The pro- 
tection of dumb animals and of little children from 
cruelty has been a work in which New York has 
set an example which has gleamed like a ray of light 
around the world. In all branches of good work 
for the suffering and distressed, New York keeps 
the leadership which she has inherited from her 
honest, industrious, warm-hearted, kindly, human 
Dutch ancestry. 

I am dealing in general figures now. In New 
York to-day there are so many of these branches of 
work that they run around like the Irishman's 
chickens, and it is difficult to keep count of them. 
There are more than 30 general hospitals, more 
than 25 special hospitals, and more than 20 hos- 
pitals for women and children, and more than 100 
dispensaries. According to the account in the 
New York Herald — a very interesting and admir. 
able account, to which I have already referred, — 
last year in New York our involuntary contribu- 
tions to charity through the tax-gatherer amounted 



51 

to $4,720,000 ; our voluntary contributions through 
public societies amounted to $5,272,000; the con- 
tributions through the churches (which are only 
estimated, because it is impossible to get at the 
figures accurately) amounted to $5,000,000 ; and 
the private gifts of charity out of the pockets of 
citizens of New York are estimated at $10,000,000. 

Now, gentlemen, — I had almost said brethren, — 
understand what this means : $5,000,000 given by 
New Yorkers whether they want to give or not, and 
$20,000,000 given freely, because they want to help 
the poor and the afflicted. That is a splendid 
record. That is better than any diadem of gold. 
It is the crown of honor that belongs to the city 
which helps the poor and the afflicted. 

There are some people who do not like New 
York. I have observed that for the most part 
they are people who do not live in New York. 
They say some very hard things about New York. 
For example, they say it is not very clean — not as 
clean as Bangor ; they say New York is not very 
cultured — not as cultured as Boston ; they say 
New York is not very quiet — not as quiet as 
Philadelphia ; and they say that New York is not 
modest and lowly — like Chicago. But there is one 
thing that nobody ever dare say about New York, 
and that is that New York has not a big, warm 
heart and an open hand to relieve the needy and 
the distressed. I have been here sixteen years 
and doing hard work every year, and there have 
been times when I have found it difficult to find 
work for men that were out of it, and the only 
way I could get them out of their predicament 
was to pay their fare back to Oshkosh, or wherever 
they came from. But I never yet found a year or 



52 

a day when I could not get charity for any man 
who was honest and who really needed it. 

Now, gentlemen, you have been very patient in 
listening to this long talk, and I almost feel like 
saying, as a minister once said to a little boy : 
"Johnny, I saw you in church to-day and you were 
very good and quiet." " Oh, yes," said Johnny, 
" I was afraid I would wake pa up ! " I just want 
to add one word of practical application before I 
sit down. You know it is very hard to choke a 
preacher off until he has made a practical applica- 
tion. There is one thing better than charity, and 
that is, to use a distinction which a lawj-er gave 
me last night, benevolence, which aims not at the 
relief of the immediate necessities of the poor, 
but aims at the prevention of the need of charity. 
Now, there are a great many movements and in- 
stitutions which have this directly in view. All 
movements for the improvement of the dwellings 
of the poor, all movements for the betterment 
of the sanitary condition of this city to prevent 
disease and weakness, movements for public baths, 
movements for public libraries, and, above all, 
movements for schools for the people, public and 
private, — all these are efforts along the line of 
benevolence as distinguished from charity ; that is 
to say, efforts which aim to prevent need before 
relieving it. And I say that New York ought to 
give a full and hearty and a more generous support 
than she has cfiven heretofore to these thinofs. We 
ought to have more public schools and libraries, 
and more institutions founded by men of wealth 
for the sake of educating and teaching people of 
moderate means. I tell you, gentlemen, institu- 
tions like Cooper Union and the Hebrew Institute 



53 

have done more for the safety of this town than all 
the arsenals ever built in it. 

But let us still remember that until these in- 
stitutions are multiplied, and until they get in their 
work, there will probably be constant need of char- 
ity, — that is, the actual relief of suffering and dis- 
tress. Probably a certain amount of such need will 
always exist, because there will always be unfortu- 
nate people, who are incapacitated, physically or 
mentally, for the battle of life. 

I pray God that the mighty stream of charity 
here in New York may never be diminished by one 
rill, but may increase, and may be still more and 
more wisely administered. We have not got too 
many hospitals and dispensaries. We do not want 
less ; what we need is, that those we have should 
be administered in the most careful and efficient 
manner. We need that the institutions which al- 
ready exist, and which might degenerate into means 
of pauperizing people, should be so manned by 
men of hard heads, as well as of warm hearts, that 
they shall not go astray and do harm. 

I plead with you to-night, have a personal in- 
terest and a personal share in the charities of 
this great, generous city of which you ought to 
be proud to be citizens. I plead with you, each 
man, know something about what is being done 
and put your hand to the work so that you will 
make your power, your influence, and your money 
felt. That is the way to make a city strong, 
powerful, and splendid. Let each man do his part. 
I plead to-night for every man that is an able- 
bodied, clear-headed, warm-hearted man to have 
some share in the blessed work of making this 
city a place in which charity is not only wide be- 



54 

yond a parallel among the cities of the world, but 
also wise in accordance with the words of Him who 
said, " Whatsoever ye would that others should do 
unto you, even so do ye unto them." 

The Chairman : Some time ago there was a boy 
in Brooklyn whom I used to know, and he grew 
up with singular felicity. He jumped into com- 
merce, and then into politics, and then he jumped 
into learning, and, like a New Englander, every 
time he landed on his feet. I do not know whether 
to introduce him as Honorable, or Doctor, or 
President. So I will say it in Dutch, — Seth Low, 
who will respond to the toast : 

"THE MEN WITH WHOM THE PILGRIM 
FATHERS SOJOURNED." 

" Yet are many of us further obliged by the good and courteous 
treatment which we found in your country, for which we 
and our children after us are bound to be thankful to 
your nation, and shall never forget the same." 




ADDRESS OF HON. SETH LOW. 

Mr. Chairman a?id Ge7ttlemcn of the Holland 
Society : 




BEFORE I speak to the toast which has 
been assigned to me, may I venture 



to say a single word as the President 
of Columbia University in recognition 
of the course of lectures recently es- 
tablished by this Society upon Dutch literature and 
which are now being delivered at Columbia. I 
have been told, how accurately I do not know, that 
it is the first course of lectures upon Dutch litera- 
ture specifically which has ever been delivered in 
the United States. If so, it would indicate that 
the Dutchmen of New Amsterdam, even if they 
are slow in some things, are at least sure, and I 
venture to express the hope that this union be- 
tween the University and the Holland Society in 
the effort to promote some acquaintance in this 
city with the literature of old Holland may be con- 
tinued, and that the results of it may be advan- 
tageous to the city. 

I want to express on behalf of the University 
our appreciation of your co-operation, and to thank 

55 



56 

you one and all for making this course of lectures 
possible. 

A great many years ago a gentleman from 
Connecticut migrated to Brooklyn, then a small 
Dutch settlement. One of the old Dutch burgh- 
ers of the village said to him, "Why do all of 
you New Englanders come down here to disturb 
our repose ? " and the New Englanders reply was, 
" Sir, we come here to marry your daughters, and 
to atlminister your estates." I am here to-night, 
to paraphrase that answer, as a descendant of New 
England, to admire your daughters in the gallery 
who favor this banquet with their presence, and to 
administer so much of your estate as a man with a 
good appetite properly can. I bring here naturally 
some of the traits of the occupation with which I 
am now connected, and I have observed several 
thing's about this bill of fare which have interested 
me from a linguistic standpoint. In the first place, 
I am reminded of that utterance of Mark Twain, 
who said that the most striking peculiarity of 
foreigners in the use of their language was that 
they did not know how to spell. Who would have 
thought of spelling soup s-o-c-p ? Then there is 
another thing even more noticeable. While you 
have been able to express in the language of Hol- 
land, as I suppose, all of the viands that one is 
accustomed to meet with in most places, when you 
came to terrapin your language failed. It re- 
minded me of the utterance of a school commis- 
sioner in Massachusetts who said to the assembled 
children one morning, " My children, the correct 
pronunciation of the English language is important 
in this world and in the world to come." It may 
be very well to put the two ends of the bill of fare 



57 

in Dutch, but when it comes to terrapin it has to 
be put down in good English. 

I have always understood that the people of 
Holland were always noticeable for cleanliness and 
neatness and good order. I did n't know that it was 
because they were in the habit of eating soap ! 
And, following- out for the moment the suQ;^orestion 
of cleanliness carried by that thought, I may per- 
haps suggest a certain danger to those inclined to 
take the Dutch as their models in the use of the 
broom. I remember that Tromp swept the English 
Channel with a broom at his masthead, but in doing 
that he swept a place that did not need it very 
much, and he had the wrong end of the broom 
down. The moral of this in municipal affairs I am 
sure must be clear to everybody. 

But, gentlemen, I am here as a lineal descendant 
of one of those who was referred to in this letter 
written by Governor Bradford of Plymouth Colony 
in 1627 : " There are many of us very obliged by 
the good and courteous treatment which may be 
found in your country for which we and our children 
after us are bound to be thankful to your Nation 
and shall never forget the same." As one of the 
thousands of those who have descended from that 
little company I am sure that I may speak in behalf 
of all in once more renewing our expression of 
thanks to Holland and this people. And perhaps I 
can point you to some things for which it seems to 
us we are indebted to the people of Holland. I re- 
member that the Pilgrims went from England to that 
little country first of all because they had heard that 
there people enjoyed freedom of religion, to worship 
God as they saw fit. I think that the United States 
of America owe no little of the religious freedom 



58 

which is characteristic of this country to the people 
of Holland. I think I can illustrate to you how that 
characteristic has been true of the city of New 
York for many years. When Kings College was 
established here in 1754 it was provided in the 
charter that amongf the ex-ofificio members of the 
governors of that college should be the Rector of 
Trinity Church, the Rector of the Dutch Church, 
the Minister of the French Church, the Minister 
of the Methodist Church, and I think one other, 
and it was stated in the body of the charter that no 
one connected with the colony should suffer any 
disadvantage or be deprived of any privilege by 
reason of his religious belief or practice. At that 
time the city of New York was an English colony. 
I ask you to remember that it was one hundred and 
twenty years almost after that before the test oaths 
for admission to Oxford and Cambridge were re- 
moved in England itself. Therefore I think it is 
evident that the freedom of religious worship which 
the Pilgrims found in old Holland they brought 
over with them to the new Holland, and it remained 
to permeate the atmosphere even after New Am- 
sterdam became New York, and I thank God it 
has remained to this very hour. 

Another thing- I think is noticeable. The Pil- 
grims who went from Holland to New England 
and the other English that went to New England 
were very prompt to establish free schools in New 
England. The Dutch when they came here were 
equally prompt to establish free schools. No other 
English that came to this country did anything of 
the sort. The Englishmen that went to Virginia 
and the South, the Englishmen that succeeded the 



59 

Dutch here, were not quick and prompt to establish 
a system of free popular education. Therefore I 
think it is perfectly true that a system of free 
popular education came into this country from 
Holland indirectly by way of New England and 
directly by way of New Amsterdam. 

Then one other thing it seems to me is strikingly 
suggested by the events of this last summer if you 
please. Of all the powers in the world little Hol- 
land was the first to put a stop to the growth and 
power of Spain. Her long struggle with that 
mighty monarchy is one of the wonderful chapters 
of history. After the Dutch had succeeded and 
had bearded this lion, the English did so, and now 
in our day the descendants of the Dutch and of 
the English have brought Spain once more to the 
realization that the power of enlightenment and 
the power of freedom is greater than the power of 
darkness and the power of tyranny. I say we have 
brought Spain to the realization of those things. 
God grant that it may be so. If Spain had learned 
that lesson from Holland, if she had learned it from 
the English, perhaps this chapter of her history 
would never have been written. At all events, 
whether Spain has learned it or not, our descendants 
of the English and of the Dutch realize, I am sure, 
that in this century-long conflict between the 
nations with which we are identified and the 
Spanish people it is not so much the power of one 
nation which has humbled the power of another as 
it is the power of the great ideals which have 
overmastered the power of poor ideals. 

So then as a descendant of New England ances- 
try it seems to me that we owe a debt of gratitude 



6o 

to the people of Holland for those three precious 
things : for freedom of religious worship, for a sys- 
tem of free education, and for that love of liberty 
which thinks that life is not worth living without 
freedom of religion and freedom to grow in intelli- 
gence. I do not know that that is all we owe to 
Holland, but that is a great debt. I think perhaps 
we owe to it our name, for I suppose that the 
name of the United States of America was a very 
natural adaptation of the name of the United States 
of the Netherlands. And we may owe to it, for all 
I know, the colors of our flag, for we have taken 
from the flag of Holland not indeed the orange and 
the dark blue of Nassau, but the red, white, and 
blue of their national standard. It is indeed true 
that we have added to those colors some bright and 
brilliant stars, and we of New England birth — 
Americans of every descent — are glad to believe 
that the stars upon our flag represent there some 
rich and choice blessing from heaven ; but these 
stars shine with a light that we can understand and 
with a light that can lead us on our way because 
they are bright with the spirit of those things for 
which Holland pre-eminently stands — the spirit of 
a free man to worship God untrammelled ; the spirit 
of a free man to learn while he has power to learn ; 
and the indomitable spirit of liberty that will not 
bend the knee to any power whatever except his 
God. 

The Chairman: Now, gentlemen of the Society, 
fellow Dutchmen, we have another toast, and it will 
be responded to by a typical Dutchman of Ameri- 
can descent. He went to Holland to represent us 



6i 

as an American, and he has come back to represent 
us as a Dutchman, and he is a big chip of old Dutch 
blocks — Robert B. Roosevelt, who will now reply 
to the toast : 
"AN AMERICAN'S VIEW OF HOLLAND." 





ADDRESS OF MR. ROOSEVELT. 



Gentlemen : 




HEN I was asked to speak this eve- 
ning you will observe that I was put at 
the bottom of the list. Being on the 
Dinner Committee, in selecting my- 
self to speak I might have changed 
that order had it not been that I was overruled by 
my associates, on this ground : they said to me, 
"Watch Dr. Van Dyke! We want you down 
there to watch Dr. Van Dyke." I said, " Gentle- 
men, it would be impossible for me or any other 
man to presume for one moment to imitate Dr. Van 
Dyke or endeavor to equal his eloquence." " Oh," 
they said, " we don't expect you to do that, but we 
want you to watch him in case he should break 
out into any of those eccentricities of his in which 
he has been indulging lately, such, for instance, as 
anti-expansion, and one thing and another, which 
would not suit us at all." 

So I have been sitting here watching Dr. Van 
Dyke, and I find I had more cause for it than I 
imagined or anticipated. In the first place, when 
the President of this Society failed to put in an ap- 

62 



63 

pearance this evening — and I must say that I am 
very sorry the Mayor is not here — for he ought 
certainly to have been here, and I said this in the 
presence of his brother, who I see has left the room 
— as I say, in the absence of our President I was 
requested to introduce Mr. Bergen. I was just 
about to do it when up rose Dr. Van Dyke and 
took it all away from me and proceeded to intro- 
duce Mr. Bergen himself. 

In the next place, you will remember that a 
fisherman was introduced as the ne.xt speaker, 
and I naturally thought that something had got 
mixed up, but lo and behold ! it was Dr. Van Dyke 
again. 

Then we had a letter of declination to speak by 
Dr. Behrends. Now, you know that in the first 
place a Dutchman cannot tell a lie. So Dr. 
Behrends did not attempt to make any excuse, ex- 
cept to say that he was not coming, but I expected 
that Dr. Van Dyke would at least say that Dr. 
Behrends had an attack of grippe, or something 
else, as an excuse for his absence. 

So that left me with nothing to do — as Dr. Van 
Dyke did not fly off the handle and say anything 
about anti-expansion, and did not indulge in any of 
his eccentricities — but respond to my toast, which 
is a most painful thing for an after-dinner speaker 
to do. 

In speaking of the impression that a foreigner 
gets of the land of our ancestors, the first thing is 
the appearance of the country when approaching it. 
If you arrive in a steamship at Amsterdam or 
Rotterdam, the former of which is called the Venice 
of the north, you ascend the river and canal, and 
are startled by finding that you are actually higher 



64 

on the deck of the vessel than the surrounding 
land through which you are passing, like a sea-gull 
sailing slowly through the air, — indeed, at high 
tide nearly up even with the second stories of the 
houses which line the bank of the waterway. You 
realize for the first time in a practical, striking 
fashion, the fact that the dry ground was indeed won 
from the bottom of the sea. This is further empha- 
sized by the windmills. Of course you knew all 
about them and you expected to see the windmills, 
but you had no realization of their actuality. There 
they are in all directions, visible over the flat country 
as many as twenty at one time, working away, slash- 
ing their sails around unceasingly. They loom up 
in the foreground, they tower over the tree-tops, 
they appear amid the groups of houses, or they 
stand singly and alone in the broad landscape, but 
they all are busy, tirelessly busy, never stopping for 
an instant, never resting, clattering out " Can't stop, 
can't stop ; we are fighting the water ; if we give up 
this 'everlasting demnition grind,' if we pause, it 
will gain on us. Fight it, fight it, day and night!" 
Those monster windmills, compared with the little 
affairs which we are getting to use so universally 
for household labors, are as giants to pigmies, as 
steam-engines to sewing-machines. They seem to 
resemble huee living- beingrs doomed to endless 
toil. They are the great guardian spirits of our 
fatherland. 

The landscape, by its uniformity of levelness, has 
a depressing effect, and gives the newcomer an 
impression of dullness and dreariness, which only 
wears off when he comes in contact with the people. 
There are a few trees, clumps of them here and 
there, and the admiration for them and for the 



65 

little strip of woods near The Hague, called the 
Scheveningen Bosch, is hardly comprehensible to 
us who have been accustomed to treading the 
primeval forest, where we have walked for days 
surrounded by the hoary trees, counting their age 
by centuries, and with their leafy tops forming a 
canopy so dense as to be wholly impenetrable to 
the fierce rays even of our summer sun. We could 
find, within the confines of New York city, a woods 
as extensive as that of Scheveningen, and twenty 
such within the limits of our comparatively treeless 
Long Island. There are few old trees in Holland 
because there was no primeval land for them to 
grow on. 

When the visitor gets acquainted with the people 
he will find them the most amiable, the most hos- 
pitable, the broadest and kindest-hearted, the most 
respectably jovial of any in Europe. You may be 
astonished when I tell you that the funniest funny 
paper in the world is published in Holland, and 
moreover that the jokes are such that they would 
not bring a blush to the cheek of the young person, 
while they would bring smiles to that person's lips, 
if not aches to that person's sides. It is as great a 
contrast to the unclean jokes of the French as are 
the manners of the residents of The Hague to those 
of the inhabitants of Paris. In Holland you are 
made at home, you are invited to the houses, you 
are taken into the families ; in France you are 
never asked to cross the threshold of the door 
except to formal and necessary entertainments. 
Our American hospitality can be traced directly to 
Dutch ancestry, and although it is sometimes abused 
and ridiculed by foreigners who neither understand 
nor appreciate it, it speaks well for the honesty and 



66 

purity of the people who neither do evil to their 
hosts, nor expect their guests to do evil to th^m 
when they are hosts. The young ladies of The 
Hague run around the streets as gaily and safely 
and as innocently as the young ladies do in every city 
of America. This can be said of no other country' 
of Europe. In none of the large cities of other 
nations would they be free from insult at least. 
The cleanness of Holland is proverbial, — the clean- 
ness of their houses and their streets ; we are glad 
to add that it seems to enter into their hearts and 
manners as well. Let me mention an example of 
charity that is peculiarly appropriate on this occa- 
sion. Contributions were sent to be used at the 
installation of the young Queen in amounts greater 
than were actually needed. Instead of spending 
this overplus in ornamentation or useless extrava- 
gance or adding it to her own possessions she em- 
ployed it in charity. She first dedicated one of her 
own palaces, a residence inherited directly from her 
father, as a hospital, and then she used this money 
to endow it. Could there be a nobler or sweeter 
memorial of her entrance upon her royal duties ? 

The more you know the people of Holland the 
more you respect them. The proverb says a 
people are not to be counted by their numbers, but 
by their virtues. You have the contrast of the 
Chinese and the Dutch, and we congratulate our- 
selves that we are derived from the latter, not the 
former stock. The first blood shed for liberty in 
Europe was shed in Holland. The first blood 
for liberty in this country was shed in the city of 
New York, at the battle of Golden Hill. The 
firm attitude of the people of our city had, after 
compelling the authorities here to deliver up all the 



67 

stamps sent to them and allow them to be burned 
in the presence of the public, forced the mother 
country to repeal the stamp tax. Over the erec- 
tion of a liberty pole, however, there was a fierce 
contest with the soldiery, and the first patriot of 
the American Revolution was killed, just as the 
first ideas of liberty in Europe were bathed in 
Dutch blood two hundred years before. 

Speaking of jokes, I will tell you one that a 
gentleman of Hebrew extraction unwittingly ut- 
tered in Rotterdam. There is a very exclusive 
club in that city, and while the utmost latitude is 
allowed in all religious matters, there exists socially 
a prejudice, which this club emphasized by refus- 
ing to admit members of that race. This gentle- 
man was so good a fellow, so generous and 
amiable, and was so universally liked, that after a 
good deal of delay and hesitation he was elected 
to membership. Well, having admitted one He- 
brew, it came naturally about that others were 
proposed, when, to the universal surprise, the most 
outspoken opponent was this very gentleman. 
" No, no," he said positively, " we don't want any 
more Jews in this club; we have Jews enough in 
this club — I am in !" 

The people so resemble in appearance, as well 
as in habits, those of early New York, or per- 
haps I ought to say the New York of my youth, 
when it still retained most of its early charac- 
teristics, that I was frequently on the point of 
speaking to strangers in the streets, thinking that 
somehow or other I must be acquainted with 
them. Their virtues, like those of our nearer 
ancestors, are often derided as the homely virtues. 
If there are better virtues than the homely ones, 



68 

if there is any nation which has a monopoly of a 
superior sort of virtue, it would be a good thing to 
make the world acquainted with the fact. If cour- 
age for the right, courage to death in the last 
ditch, courage to starve as at Leyden, if truth- 
fulness, if industry, if honesty in all transactions, 
— honesty in work, honesty in painting, honesty in 
thought and act as well as in money questions — if 
generosity, hospitality, benevolence, private kind- 
ness, and public spirit — if these are the homely 
virtues, thank heaven for them, and give us as 
many and as much of them as possible. Honesty 
is the foundation virtue of a people. The want of 
honesty in public men has lately brought Spain to 
ruin and France to shame ; honesty has made 
England the great nation that she is to-day. While 
we have had some fears that it was diminishing in 
our own country in public life, we have at least one 
good e.xample of it in one Dutchman at the head 
of the city of New York, and I am sure I express 
the sentiments of all of you when I add that we 
have another example of it in another Dutchman 
at the head of the State. 





THE SEIZURE OF NEW NETHERLAND 
BY THE ENGLISH. 




;^;;^HE following account of the manner in 

■jiJiSil which England robbed Holland of 

her American colony is taken from 

Mrs. Martha J. Lamb's^ History of 

tJie City of Neiv York, vol. I., pp. 

208, etc., by the kind permission of the publishers, 

Messrs. A. S. Barnes & Co., of New York, who 

hold the copyright of the work. 

Meanwhile, in spite of treaties and at the risk of war, Charles 
and his ministers had resolved to seize New Netherland. 

An expedition against the Dutch in America was at once 
ordered, but kept a profound secret, lest the States-General 
should send a squadron to aid their unprotected subjects. 
The Duke of York, who had been appointed Lord High Ad- 
miral of the British dominions, was to manage the enterprise. 
He borrowed of the king four war-vessels, on which he em- 
barked four hundred and fifty well trained soldiers, under the 
command of Colonel Richard Nicolls, the groom of his bed- 
chamber, who was also commissioned as governor of the yet 
unpossessed territory. 

Mischievous quarrels among the Indians to the North in- 
duced Stuyvesant to take a trip to Fort Orange. He had 
reached his destination and entered upon the work of reconcil- 

' A society has been formed to erect a monument in memory of Mrs. 
Lamb, of which Mrs. E. E. Salisbury, New Haven, Conn., is treasurer.

ng the savages, when an express followed him to say that the 
English squadron was actually on the way from Boston to New 
Amsterdam. He hurried home, arriving only three days be- 
fore the English banners floated over the bay, just below the 
Narrows. One of his first acts was to set all his own negro 
slaves and hired workmen at his farm threshing grain night and 
day, and carting it to the fort (August 29, 1664). Three weeks 
had been lost in false security ; the city, alas ! was ill prepared 
to stand a siege. The fort, and the wall at Wall Street, how- 
ever strong a defense against the Indians, would avail positively 
nothing against a civilized foe ; and there was the exposure on 
two rivers ! Four hundred men were all that could be mus- 
tered, to bear arms. Six hundred pounds was the maximum 
of powder in the fort. . . 

Stuyvesant regarded the situation with dismay. The English 
were in full possession of the harbor. He hastily called in 
the few soldiers from Esopus and other outposts, and, wishing 
to ascertain the condition of affairs on Long Island, sent to 
the English commander four commissioners, representing the 
council and the city, with a letter inquiring the object of his 
coming, and why he remained so long in the harbor without 
giving due notice. Nicolls replied that he had come to reduce 
the country to the obedience of the king of England, whose 
commission he displayed ; and that he would send a letter to 
the Governor on the following day. 

Saturday morning, August 30th, Sir George Cartwright and 
three other gentlemen came to the city, and were received with 
a formal salute from the guns of the Battery. The interview 
was ceremonious in the extreme. They bore from Nicolls to 
Stuyvesant a formal summons to surrender the province of 
New Netherland, with all its towns, forts, etc., at the same 
time promising to confirm his estate, life, and liberty to every 
man who should submit without op])osition to the king's 
authority. 

Meanwhile, Stuyvesant had been preparing an answer to the 
summons of Nicolls. It was an overwhelming argument, 
tracing the history of New Netherland through all its vicis- 
situdes, and pointing out the absolute unsoundness of the 
English claim. He pictured in earnest language the conse- 
quences of any violation of the articles of peace so solemnly 
agreed ujion by Charles and the States-General, and warned 
the English commander against aggression. He sent four of 



71 

his ablest advisers — two from his council and two from the 
city — to convey the document to Colonel Nicolls, and to " argue 
the matter" with him. 

Nicolls declined discussion. He said the question of right 
did not concern him. He must and would take possession of 
the place. If the reasonable terms he offered were not ac- 
cepted, he should proceed to attack. "On Thursday, I shall 
speak with you at the Manhattans," he said, with dignity. 

" Friends will be welcome if they come in a friendly manner," 
replied one of the delegates. 

" I shall come with my ships and soldiers, and he will be 
a bold messenger indeed who will dare to come on board and 
solicit terms," was his rejoinder. 

" What, then, is to be done ? " was asked. 

" Hoist the white flag of peace at the fort, and I may take 
something into consideration." 

The delegates returned sadly to New .\msterdam. Nicolls, 
seeing that Stuyvesant was not disposed to surrender, made 
preliminary arrangements for storming the city. He called 
the people of Long Island together at Gravesend, and pub- 
lished the king's patent to the Duke of York, and his own 
commission, in their presence. Winthrop announced, on be- 
half of Connecticut, that, as the king's pleasure was now fully 
signified, the jurisdiction which that colony had claimed and 
exercised over Long Island "ceased and became null." Nicolls 
promised to confirm all the civil officers who had been ap- 
pointed by Connecticut, — which gave immense satisfaction. 

Volunteers, to swell his army, came from all parts of the 
island. Prospects of plunder seemed to have entered largely 
into their calculations. The citizens of New Amsterdam re- 
garded them as their deadly enemies ; and well they might, at 
this juncture, for threats and curses filled the air, and rovers 
talked openly of " where the young women lived who wore 
chains of gold." 

The volunteers were encamped just below Breuckelen, to be 
ready to storm the city by land. Nicolls sent a few of his 
troops to join them. It was rumored that six hundred North- 
ern savages and one hundred and fifty Frenchmen had re- 
inforced the English forces against the Dutch. On the 
morning of September 5th Nicolls came up under full sail, and 
anchored between the fort and Governor's Island. The crisis 
had come. New Amsterdam, with its population of fifteen 



72 

hundred souls, "was encircled round about," without any 
means of deliverance. " It is a matter of desperation rather 
than soldiership to attempt to hold the fort," said Vice-Gover- 
nor De Sille. 

Stuyvesant stood in one of the angles of the fort, near 
where the gunner held a burning match, awaiting the order to 
fire at the approaching vessels. He had been expostulated 
with by one and another, who saw only infatuation and ruin in 
resisting a foe with such extraordinary advantage in point of 
numbers ; but to all he had answered, with emphasis, " I must 
act in obedience to orders." " It is madness," said Domine 
Megapolensis, laying his hand lovingly upon the Governor's 
shoulder. " Do you not see that there is no help for us either 
to the north or to the south, to the east or to the west ? 
What will our twenty guns do in the face of the sixty-two 
which are pointed towards us on yonder frigates ? Pray, do not 
be the first to shed blood ! " 

Just then, a paper was brought to Stuyvesant signed by 
ninety-three of the principal citizens, including the burgomas- 
ters and schepens, and his own son, Balthazar, urging with 
manly arguments that he would not doom the city to ashes 
and spill innocent blood, as it was evident the sacrifice could 
avail nothing in the end. He read the appeal with white lips 
and with unspeakable sorrow expressed in every feature. His 
only remark was, " I had rather be carried to my grave." 
Five minutes later, the white flag waved above the fort. 

The conquest of Long Island and New Amsterdam has been 
widely stigmatized as an act of jjeculiar national baseness. It 
was matured in secret and accomplished with a deliberate 
deceit towards a friendly government. It provoked a war 
which disgraced the reign of Charles II. ; a war in which 
Dutch fleets not only swept the Channel, but entered the 
Thames, burned the warehouses and dock-yards at Chatham, 
and maddened and terrified the citizens of London with the roar 
of their cannon. And yet, unjustifiable as it surely was for an 
undeclared enemy to sneak into a remote harbor and treacher- 
ously seize a province, the temptation furnished by the circum- 
stances of the case may perhaps be cited as a sort of palliation 
of the deed. The U'est India Company and the States-Gen- 
eral had always undervalued New Netherland ; it was their 
neglect of it which had been the most potent stimulus to 



/J) 

English ambition ; and finally, the event itself could not have 
been avoided by the Dutch government unless all their previous 
policy had been reversed and their title planted upon a more 
tenable basis. 

NOTE BY THE SECRETARY. 

What an illustration of the ideas of national morality that 
obtain among many, is found in these closing lines ! While 
admitting that it was unjustifiable for England to " sneak into " 
New Amsterdam and " treacherously seize a province " belong- 
ing to a nation with which it was not at war, this New Eng- 
land historian finds palliation in " the temptation furnished by 
the circumstances of the case " ! That is to say, because the 
Netherlands did not maintain in their American colony an 
army sufticient to resist an invasion by England, the turpitude 
of England's deed is less black ! The assertions in the last 
sentence we have quoted from Mrs. Lamb are utterly unsup- 
ported by authorities. The title of the Dutch to the country 
was incontrovertible, as was shown by Stuyvesant in the paper 
above mentioned. The Dutch government did not " under- 
value New Netherland," nor " neglect it." In the Year Book 
for 1896 we gave the names of a few of the ships sent by the 
Dutch West India Company — with emigrants — during the seven 
years preceding the English usurpation, and these were but a 
small portion of the vessels sent out by that Company, — which 
was very energetic in seeking to encourage colonization, fur- 
nishing the settlers with money, cattle, agricultural implements, 
seeds, tools, building materials, etc. And, too, it must be 
borne in mind that ten years before this seizure of New 
Netherland the people of Holland had been crushed and 
ruined by the unprovoked war made upon them by England. 

Pontalis, in his life of John De Witt, Grand Pensionary of 
Holland, says, vol. i., p. 132: "Elated by the downfall of 
royalty, the English government (under Cromwell) had 
yielded to the temptations of an unbounded ambition. The 
Parliamentary envoys were commissioned to obtain the consent 
of the States-General to the union of the two nations, under 
the authority of a great Common Council, which should sit in 
England. This was to demand from the United Provinces the 
sacrifice of their independence, by obliging them to accept the 
laws of the stronger state. The association of a great, com- 
pact, and well-united republic with a confederation of prov- 



74 

inces, each of which had its own government, could only end 
in giving England the lion's share, as she had everything to 
gain, while the United Provinces had everything to lose. The 
States-General, therefore, rejected with one accord a proposal 
destined to bring the republic into slavery, or at least into 
vassalage. The demand which was imperiously made upon 
them to banish from their territory the sons of Charles I, and 
their chief partisans, found no greater favor with them, and the 
[English] Parliament began to show irritation at being unable 
to dictate to ihcm its orders. 

" The Parliamentary ambassadors left the Hague in a haughty 
and threatening mood. Their departure was followed by two 
measures which showed clearly the arrogant and aggressive 
policy of the English government. The Parliament announced 
its warlike intentions by the celebrated Act known under the 
name of the Navigation Act, which prohibited all foreign 
vessels from importing into England any merchandise except 
the product of the soil or of the industry of their own country ; 
thereby aiming an irreparable blow at Holland, whose trans- 
port trade, valued at forty million pounds, was her chief source 
of wealth. The Navigation Act was followed by letters of 
marque given to English traders, authorizing them to indemnify 
themselves for pretended damage inflicted on them by the 
navy of the United Provinces. Soon after, the seizure of 
seventy merchant vessels carrying the Dutch flag [two thou- 
sand Dutch shi])s were subsequently seized] showed the States- 
General that they had no longer any consideration to hope for. 
The accidental though almost inevitable encounter of the two 
fleets, commanded, one by Admiral Tromp, the other by the 
English .\dmiral Blake, who had seized on the pretext of the 
refusal or delay to salute his flag for commencing the attack, 
gave the signal for hostilities." 

The war which ensued was altogether a naval campaign, in 
which the English had a vast superiority in the number and 
size of ships, number and calibre of their guns, and in the 
strength of their crews. In 1652, Tromp surprised the Eng- 
lish fleet, drove them into the Thames, and sailed victoriously 
through the English Channel, carrying a broom at his mast- 
head. But the disparity in numbers and resources between 
" brave little Holland " and England's mighty power was too 
great, and after two years, in 1654, England remained the 



75 

" Mistress of the Seas," and the Netherlands were much im- 
poverished. "The country was filled with beggars ; the richer 
families were emigrating to Flanders ; grass grew in the streets, 
and in the town of Amsterdam 1500 houses might be counted 
to be let." 

It was ten years after the close of this war, by which Holland 
had been left so weakened, and while the two countries were at 
peace, that the English seized without any warrant of right the 
province of New Netherland. It adds to the infamy of the 
deed that it was perpetrated under the authority of Charles II., 
to whom Holland had given asylum when driven from Eng- 
land, and had entertained him most royally, and which act of 
hospitality on the part of the States-General had been made 
by Cromwell one of the pretexts for waging war against them. 

England evermore has shown that her actuating principle 
has been "might makes right," and that the sacrednessof titles 
or of treaties is only regarded by her when there is sufficient 
military strength behind them to enforce their -observance by 
others. 



From Broadhead's History of the State of New 
York, pp. 734, 735, 745 : 

" The population of the province [New Netherland] was now, 
1664, full ten thousand, while New Amsterdam contained 
fifteen hundred, and wore an air of great prosperity. 

" English jealousy had, meanwhile, grown with the increas- 
ing commerce of Holland, and a rupture with the Dutch 
appeared to be near at hand. The East India [English] di- 
rectors complained of their formidable Batavian rivals. The 
African Company, of which the King's brother, James, Duke 
of York, was the governor, denounced the Dutch West India 
Company, which had striven to secure its territory on the Gold 
Coast from English intruders. James, who had been libelled 
in Holland, became the advocate of his African Company with 
the King and with Parliament ; and Downing, the British Am- 
bassador at the Hague, having a personal interest, with menacing 



language pressed exorbitant demands for damages upon the 
States. An expedition, under Sir Robert Holmes, was secretly 
dispatched against the Dutch possessions in Africa ; and aggres- 
sions, which Clarendon describes as ' without any shadow of 
justice," were committed in the midst of a covenanted peace. 

" A still more iniiiuiious measure was soon arranged. . . . 
To accomplish all objects at one blow, England now deter- 
mined boldly to rob Holland of her American province. 

"The reduction of New Netherland was now accomplished. 
All that could be further done was to change its name ; and 
to glorify one of the most bigoted princes in English history, 
the royal province was ordered to be called ' New York.' 
. . . The flag of England was at length triumphantly dis- 
played where, for half a century, that of Holland had right- 
fully waved ; and from Virginia to Canada, the King of Great 
Britain was acknowledged as Sovereign. Viewed in all its as- 
pects, the events which gave 'to the whole of that country a 
unity in allegiance and to which a misgoverned people com- 
placently submitted,' was as inevitable as it was momentous. 
But, whatever may have been its ultimate consequences, this 
treacherous and violent seizure of the territory and possessions 
of an unsus])ecting ally was no less a breach of j)rivate justice 
than of |)ublic faith. It may, indeed, be affirmed that, among 
all the acts of selfish perfidy which royal ingratitude conceived 
and executed, there have been few more characteristic, and 
none more base. 

" Much of what has been written of American history has 
been written by those who, from habit or prejudice, have 
been inclined to magnify the influence and extol the merit of 
the Anglo-Saxon race, at the expense of every other element 
which has assisted to form the national greatness. 

" In no particular has this been more remarkable than in the 
unjust view which has so often been taken of the founders of 
New York. Holland has long been a theme for the ridicule 
of British writers ; and even in this country the character and 
manners of the Dutch have been made the subjects of an un- 

' Note by the Secretary: It has not been proven tliat the people were 
" misgoverned," and the statement that they " complacently submitted " is 
completely neutralized by the fact that, after nine years of English rule, the 
citizens hailed with the greatest enthusiasm the re-establishment of Dutch 
authority when, in lf)73, the States-General, during the war with England, 
recaptured the province. 



n 



worthy depreciation, caused perhaps, in some instances, by too 
ready an imitation of those provincial chroniclers who could see 
little good in their ' noxious neighbors ' of New Netherland. 

" Yet, without undervaluing others, it may confidently be 
claimed that to no nation in the world is the Republic of the 
West more indebted than to the United Provinces, for the idea 
of the confederation of sovereign states ; for noble principles 
of constitutional freedom ; for magnanimous sentiments of re- 
ligious toleration ; for characteristic sympathy with the subjects 
of oppression ; for liberal doctrines in trade and commerce ; 
for illustrious patterns of private integrity and public virtue ; 
and for generous and timely aid in the establishment of inde- 
pendence. Nowhere among the people of the United States 
can men be found excelling in honesty, industry, courtesy, or 
accomplishment the posterity of the early Dutch settlers in 
New Netherland. 

"And when the providence of God decreed that the rights of 
humanity were again to be maintained through long years of 
endurance and of war, the descendants of Hollanders nobly 
emulated the example of their forefathers ; nor was their stead- 
fast patriotism outdone by that of any of the heroes in the 
strife which made the blood-stained soil of New York and New 
Jersey the Netherlands of America."

HE members of the Holland Society in 
Albany and vicinity gave a dinner 
in honor of our fellow-member, Gov- 
ernor Theodore Roosevelt, at the 
Fort Orange Club, on Tuesday, 
January 24, 1899. 

The committee in charge of the affair consisted 
of Dr. Albert Vander Veer, Vice-President for 
Albany County, and Messrs. Richard Varick De 
Witt, Charles Visscher Winne, Isaac De Freest 
Lansing, Charles Frederick Van Benthuysen, and 
Miles Woodward Vosburgh. 

The account in one of the Albany papers states : 



" The dinner given by the members of the Albany branch of 
the Holland Society to Governor Roosevelt at the Fort Orange 
Club last night, was perhaps the most successful dinner the 
society has given in this vicinity. The prominent representa- 
tives of the old Dutch families of old Dutch Albany were 
present, together with several well-known out-of-town mem- 
bers. The dining-room of the Fort Orange Club was decorated 
in the most elaborate manner. Large groups of palms were 
placed at salient points in the room, and connecting them were 
banks of nephrolepis ferns and laurel roping. Between these 

78 



79 

were draped the Holland colors of this era and the red, white, 
and blue. The side chandeliers were draped with small 
American silk flags, tied with bows of orange ribbon. The 
large central chandeliers were festooned with southern laurel, 
and entwined with orange ribbon. In the recess where the 
fireplace is, a great moose-head appeared above, looking out 
from a number of Norfolk pine trees with banks of moss and 
ferns, while from overhead, southern smilax hung from the 
ceiling in natural grace. The tables were arranged in a horse- 
shoe form. An immense basket of yellow tulips was set in 
the place of honor opposite the Governor, while in front of 
ever)' guest a tall thin vase stood, tied with a bow of orange 
ribbon, holding a specimen Fournesol tulip, the variegated yel- 
low and red variety. The centres of the tables were decorated 
with plants of lilies of the valley, asparagus sprengerin, hya- 
cinths, darallia moarearo ferns, daffodils, etc., all the pots 
being handsomely covered with orange coverings and trimmed 
with orange ribbon. The effect of the whole room was 
exquisite. 

Those present were : 

Governor Theodore Roosevelt, Consul-General Planten, Rev. 
E. P. Johnson, and Dr. MacDonald, guests of the society ; 
Dr. Albert Vander Veer, John G. Myers, Charles L. Pruyn,

SPEECH OF GOVERNOR ROOSEVELT. 




Our Dutch Governor. The first in more than 
fifty years. May he receive as loyal support 
from the public, in his official duties, as was 
given him in the famous charge at San Juan. 

" Give them great meals of beef, and iron and steel, 
They will eat like wolves and fight like devils." 

OVERNOR ROOSEVELT re- 
sponded to the first toast. He 
was very happy in his return of 
thanks for the privilege afforded 
him of meetinsf the Dutchmen of 
Albany, particularly those who are members of the 
Holland Society, greeting them as fellow-members. 
He spoke with a good deal of earnestness of 
the past histor)' of Holland, its energetic citizens, 
and the stamp they had impressed upon the colo- 
nization of this State. He emphasized greatly that 
it was of little avail what one's position in life 
was, whether born to labor or luxury, that action, 
intense action, was absolutely necessarj'. Man must 
do his own work. He must show his faith by his 
works, and the building up of one's life, the suc- 

83 



84 

cess of one's individual career, must depend largely 
upon the amount of energy and vitality he puts 
into his labors. Man amounts to little except he 
has some individualism, some object in life, and 
bends all his energies in that direction. Let his 
efforts be for good, let them be for the benefit of the 
public. He must place his standard well up and 
aim to reach it with all the self-control and bring- 
ing together of factors that will lead to success. 

The Governor had more to say, and this is but a 
brief abstract of his remarks. When he had fin- 
ished speaking he was given three cheers and a 
tiger with a royal will. 





SPEECH OF MAYOR VAN ALSTYNE. 

Our Municipality. A Mayor-Burgomaster worthy 
of our ancestors. 




" As the Laws are above magistrates, so are the magistrates 
above the people." 

Mr. Chairman and Brethren of the Holland Society. • 

HAVE had placed in my hands, since 
coming to the banquet table, the pro- 
gramme of the after-dinner proceed- 
ings. I find, in second place, the toast, 
"Our Municipality; a Mayor- Burgo- 
master worthy of our ancestors," with my name as 
respondent. But a little distance below I find an 
additional toast, " Our City ; the home of Olykoecks 
and gable ends ; if not a Van, then, better yet, a 
Lansing. The People Are the City." Respondent, 
Mr. Lansing. 

That which seemed a privilege in the toast as- 
signed is eliminated by the toast which follows, and 
your Chairman has got me to act the play of Hamlet 
with " Hamlet " left out. 

Albany has been of considerable importance in 

85 



86 

the history of the western continent, the estab- 
lishment and growth of the American Republic, 
and that civilization which, transplanted from behind 
the dykes of Holland, and brought to highest per- 
fection in America, is now making its impress, for 
better, upon all the peoples of the earth. 

The American continents had remained in obscu- 
rity for an unreckoned period of time. If they ever 
had been known to any of the inhabitants of the 
eastern hemisphere, the time of such knowledge 
was so remote that it had passed out of the memory 
of man. After discovery, by the energy and well- 
directed philosophy of Columbus, they were allowed, 
especially so far as the northern section was con- 
cerned, to remain in abeyance for a hundred years, 
without attempt at settlement. More than a hun- 
dred years after discovery, Holland enterprise took 
the matter of exploration in hand, principally for 
commercial purposes, and the first settlement was 
made by these ever-industrious and outreaching 
Dutchmen at the fuyk, now Albany. 

Out of the settlement, almost immediately came 
the establishment of church organization and ser- 
vice. The people — I beg pardon — the municipality 
was not content in creating this privilege for the 
inhabitants within its stockades. It insisted, and 
used means to enforce the insistence, that all of like 
religious faith, living within reaching distance in 
the surrounding country, should be parishioners of 
its church and induced to observe the rules and 
regulations governing it. 

After a time, when success had been attained, 
when from a condition of limited circumstances the 
settlement had become strong in possession and, 
incidentally, wealthy, when the number of the 



87 

"gable ends of its houses and their inmates" had 
increased, not largely, but substantially, it applied 
to the Governor of the province for a charter as a 
city. 

Thomas Dongan, then acting Governor, on the 
2 2d day of July, 1686, over his signature, granted 
a charter, which has from that day to this, with 
emendations and changes, been the foundation of 
its individuality. 

You will permit me to recite from the record : 
" Whereas the town of Albany is an ancient town 

within the province, etc I, Thomas 

Dongan, by virtue of the commission and authority 
unto me given, and power in me residing, at the 
humble petition of the justices of the peace of the 
said town of Albany, and for divers other good 
causes and considerations me thereunto moving, 
have given, granted, ratified and confirmed &c., 
unto the said inhabitants of the said town herein- 
after agreed to be called by the name or names of 
the Mayor, Aldermen and Commonalty of the City 
of Albany, all and every such and the same liberty, 
privileges, franchises, rights, free customs, jurisdic- 
tions and immunities which they have anciently 

had, held and enjoyed and the 

aforesaid public buildings, accommodations and 
conveniences, pieces or parcels of ground in the said 
town, that is to say, the said town hall or stadt 
house, with the ground thereunto belonging ; the 
said church or meeting place, with the ground about 
the same ; the said burying place and watch house 
and grounds thereto belonging; the said pasture 
and aforementioned ferry, with their and every of 
their rights, members and appurtenances, together 
with all their profits, benefits, advantages," &c., &c. 



88 

The recitals in the charter attest that Albany, 
in 1686, had not only advanced in years, but in 
strength and respectability, and was an integer and 
effective force in the development of the western 
continent. 

To talk of Albany is to recite an oft-told tale — 
but a tale that never wanes by wearing. 

Albany did not abate her regard for the church 
nor the school. The first meeting-house had stood 
at the junction of Handler and Jonkers streets from 
a date soon after the settlement to the granting of 
the charter. The earliest of her enactments, as a 
city, was to provide officers to maintain perfect 
order durinji church service. Her next act was to 
prohibit boys and idle men from riding down-hill on 
sleighs, to the danger of the personal safety of ladies 
on their way to church. It was only a little later 
that the city endowed the church with the outlying 
land of the pasture. The pasture continued to be a 
source of revenue, by rentals and alienation, to aid 
it in its religious purposes and provide relief for the 
indigent and suffering poor, for more than two 
hundred years thereafter. And, finally, when it 
became necessar)' to remove the old meeting-house, 
the city paid five hundred dollars for the church 
site alone. 

The municipality early took an interest in the 
establishment of schools. The Lancasterian school, 
the first in line of a free school, was established by 
it in 1 81 5 and maintained until 1834. When this 
school was suspended, the buildings which had 
been used as schoolhouse and the sjround belontr- 
ing to it were granted by the city to the then 
newly organized Albany Medical College. This 
college, from the day of its dedication to the pres- 



89 

ent, has stood in the front rank of educational in- 
stitutions of its kind. Its alumni include many 
names of eminent distinction, and its chief chair is 
now honored by incumbency of our esteemed friend 
and brother, Dr. Vander Veer. 

An attempt had been made by some of our citi- 
zens, prior to 1835, to establish an academy for 
the higher education of the youth of the city. The 
people having failed in this enterprise, the city 
took the matter in hand and, at an expense of 
nearly one hundred thousand dollars, built the 
academy which now stands on the brow of the 
central of the five historic hills of Albanj-. In its 
architectural lines it is a structure of beauty. It 
has not only served the purpose of our people, 
but has attracted the attention and commenda- 
tion of observant travellers from most foreign 
countries. 

Albany has gone farther, and has devoted earnest 
endeavor continuously to increase the privileges 
for education in the field of the free common 
school, now conducted throughout the State. It 
maintains a high school, an advanced step to the 
grammar schools, which are higher in their grade 
than the common district free school, at an annual 
expense of much money. 

So much for Albany, gentlemen, in connection 
with the church and the school. It is but the 
hundredth part of her roll of merit. The rest must 
be left untold. 

Albany, too, has been phenomenally active in de- 
velopment of the commerce of the country. When 
we reflect upon the progress of development in 
this line of human industr)% it will occur to us that 
the chief facility consists in transportation, and to- 



90 

(la)' the principal means in that behalf consist in 
carriage by vessel and by railway car. 

Of course the vessel in its crude form has existed 
from the earliest periods of time. The semi-civil- 
ized, even the aborigines, observed the floating log 
in the current of the stream. It was perfectly nat- 
ural they should avail themselves of something of 
the kind for crossing streams and for transportation. 
The dugout succeeded the log, and the rude skiff 
the dugout. From these came the uncouth vessels 
that were used at the time of the discovery of 
America. The tubs that then floated at will of 
wind and wave have now become the palatial struc- 
tures that ply the seas. Sails and wind were unre- 
liable as means of propulsion. Necessity and 
genius struck hands, and out of it came the adop- 
tion of steam. The engine and the screw are 
masters of wave and wind. 

It will be remembered that the first really suc- 
cessful demonstration that steam could be made 
available in this respect was the voyage of the 
Clermotit in 1807 from the city of New York to 
the city of Albany. Robert R. Livingston, a de- 
scendant of one of Albany's earliest public chief 
officials, was a prime promoter in the development 
of this enterprise. Albany was, in compliment to 
him and the memorj' of his ancestors, the terminal 
of the first attempted and successful voyage. Out 
of this beginning have come the great steamships 
that cross the ocean, no longer of wood, but of 
iron and steel, revolutionizing ocean travel and at 
the same time minimizing the space of time nec- 
essary therefor. 

Again, when it became necessary that more rapid 
and enlarged means of transportation should sue- 



91 

ceed that of the team and wagon, tramways were 
built and railway cars were constructed. The fact 
that steam could be used for the propulsion of ves- 
sels being established, it was found that it could be 
made applicable to the locomotion of cars. It was 
out of that that the great railway system of America 
has arisen, which led and leads all others in the 
world. It will be remembered that Albany was the 
starting-place of the first railway passenger train 
on the soil of the western continent. 

Albany in its government has always been broad, 
equitable, just, and liberal, recognizing the rights 
of the people, irrespective of race, descent, or reli- 
gious faith, giving unto each equal privilege and 
like recognition in making laws and conducting 
public affairs. Albany has ever been sensitive touch- 
ing its municipal prerogatives and the individual 
rights of its citizens. 

When in the minds of the best thinkers of 
America it seemed necessary^ for the various colo- 
nies constituting the settlements of the western 
hemisphere to confer together for mutual protec- 
tion and safety, Albany was selected as the place of 
council. It was here, the plan to some extent was 
conceived and formulated which ultimately culmi- 
nated in the Republic of America — the United 
States. 

In other respects Albany has been progressive 
and a pioneer. 

What is it that brings all parts of the world in 
juxtaposition ? What is it that renders the occur- 
rences of the evening in Berlin the possible news 
at the breakfast table of our town on the following 
morning ? Naught but the telegraph whose cables 
are stretched beneath the depths of the ocean from 



92 

land to land, from shore to shore, and across conti- 
nents, girdling the world in an unbroken line, along 
which the lightning flashes bear messages of events 
of each succeeding hour from point to point the 
most remote in distance from each other. 

It should never be forgotten that to the scien- 
tific rescarcli and earnest endeavor of citizens of 
Albany are due the invention and application of 
the telegraph. 

Albany was wise when she extended her liber- 
ality and built the beautiful structure in the park 
below us, the Albany Academy. Albany did well 
when by her contribution she placed in the various 
chairs of that academy men of earnest purpose and 
untiring industry in scientific research, men who 
could conceive and have the energy of conviction 
to attempt development. The men who discovered 
the possibility and assured the adaptation of elec- 
tricity as the bearer of messages the world round 
were teachers in our Boys' Academy. 

And so in many other instances, did the hour 
permit me the privilege, I should be able to recite 
additional incidents where Albany has been first in 
endeavor and chief in accomplishing many of the 
thines which have contributed to the orreatest com- 
fort and lasting benefit of mankind. 

Albany for many years has been the seat of 
government of the Empire State of the Union. 
This fact has added undoubtedly to her considera- 
tion and privileges. When made the capital city, 
the state was poor and Albany gave it quarters. 
Later a capitol building was erected for joint use 
of the state, the county, and the city, the rates of 
contribution to expense being about two to the 
state to one to the city. All that is of the past. 



93 

The granite building on the block adjoining that 
on which we are all assembled is the wonder, if not 
the glory, of the age. It represents twenty-three 
millions of dollars. It is here to stay. While 
it speaks the greatness and wealth of the State, 
the building of more correct and classical design, 
dimmed by its shadow at evening tide, is its equal 
in grace and beauty, and the City Hall typifies the 
city as the Capitol does the state. 

I cannot mention our other public buildings — 
astronomical observatory, hygienic laboratory, ca- 
thedrals, churches, hospitals, or asylums. Our 
park and resorts of pleasure and pastime would 
each be a theme of discourse, as they are a source 
of pride to the city. 

In addition to what I have recited, when the first 
survey of the State was made with a view of meeting 
the requirements of transportation, the men who 
conceived, and impressed upon the public mind, the 
idea of a canal and who made such survey were 
residents of Albany. It was owing to the labor of 
those men that the State, subsequently directed by 
the wise counsel of DeWitt Clinton, the then Gov- 
ernor, built the Erie Canal, in 1825, which has 
been one of the main arteries of vitality extending 
from the Western lakes to this city. A current 
of vivifying life has thus flowed from the plains of 
the West, the great fields of agriculture, to the 
cities of the Atlantic coast, the great ports of com- 
merce and the sites of manufacture. 

Gentlemen, the respectful attention you have 
given to my imperfect and incomplete recital of 
the past of Albany manifests your interest in, and 
appreciation of, our ancient city. Its treasure house 
of historic record is stored with jewels, rich and 



94 

rare — but the pointer on yonder dial admonishes 
me of the flight of time. 

I reUictantly suspend recital with the declaration 
that I am proud not only of being a descendant of 
the earliest pioneers who first plied their industry 
in founding the city with assiduity, like the beaver, 
native, and still holding his settlement on the banks 
of the neighboring streams, but also of the associa- 
tion with the sons of like pioneers, by whom I am 
now surrounded. 

As Albany was the product of the Dutchmen's 
earliest endeavor in America, so may it remain the 
pride of their descendants through all future time. 





SPEECH OF MR. PLANTEN. 

Queen Wilhelmina. May the same allegiance 
given by the Albany Dutchmen to Holland's 
Queen, the same friendly spirit between the 
Old and the New Netherland, continue to 
exist, growing stronger each year. 




" Sail on, nor fear to breast the sea ; 
Our hearts our hopes, are all with thee." 

R. PRESIDENT, Members of the 
Holland Society of Albany, formerly 
Beverwyck, and Guests, I beg you 
to accept my sincere appreciation for 
the so very cordial greeting given to 
the toast to which it is my very great pleasure 
to be called upon to respond. 

First and foremost, I tender you in the name of 
Her Majesty Queen Wilhelmina and people, the 
thanks which are due you for the warm, affection- 
ate regard so freely expressed, and the enthusiasm 
wherewith you thus honor her and the nation 
whom it is my privilege to represent. We are, as 
co-descendants, justly proud of being so closely 
linked to that nation whose historic record and 

95 



96 

character are most truly set forth in these lines, no 
doubt familiar to you all : 

" What builds a nation's bulwarks high and its foundations 

firm ? 
What makes it mighty to defy the foes that round it storm ? 
Not gold, but only men can make a people great and strong, 
Men who for truth and honor's sake stand fast and suffer 

long : 
Brave men who watch while others sleep, who fight while 

others fly. 
They plant a nation's pillars deep and lift them to the sky." 

I have been asked to tell you the story of those 
eventful days in September last that gave Old 
Holland a holiday season, in which not only its 
own people, but the nations of the world took 
great interest, and which he or she who was for- 
tunate enough to be an eye-witness will retain the 
most happy recollection of for all coming time. 

Reaching Holland in June, I had ample time to 
note how very general preparation was being made 
to show the nation's sympathy and joy, with loving 
regard for their Queen, whose induction to office 
was to take place on September 9th. Any one 
who has not been a witness of the universal en- 
thusiasm of the people for the Queen, their ruler, 
can form no conception of the undivided affection 
accorded to her, wishing her a future of peace, 
good-will, and happiness, in which you and I, I 
am sure, readily join with them. 

Hoping that the wisdom of her reign 

Shall prove the glory of her life. 

Thus history's record of her name. 

May add new lustre to the House of Orange fame. 

The day previous to the coronation, her Majesty 
came to Amsterdam and after her entry took a 



97 

drive through the city, witnessing a grand tour- 
nament of athletic sports. Her arrival on these 
grounds was made the occasion of sending mes- 
sages by carrier pigeons, some four or five thousand, 
simultaneously to different places, to announce the 
presence of her Majesty in the capital. 

The coronation ceremonies were of a most im- 
posing character, and not to be forgotten by any 
one who was fortunate enough to be within the 
walls of the New Church where they took place. 
There is nothing imposing in the exterior of this 
building, in fact it would hardly be noticed in 
passing, from the manner in which it is hidden by 
buildings around it, were it not for its walls tower- 
ing above them. 

On entering the church, its height and large size 
at once become apparent, having a seating capa- 
city for several thousand people. On my entering 
I found nearly every seat occupied and standing- 
room likewise. The morning of September gth, 
though not dark or dreary, yet conveyed the fear 
that clouds might bar sunshine, a gloomy outlook 
for the brightness which would be in accord with 
the hopes of old and young for a gladsome sky, 
as betokening a happy reign to the Queen, not 
inappropriately claimed to be their "Queen of 
Hearts." After some patient waiting, the joyous 
noise from the masses that surrounded the palace 
square made it evident to the audience that the 
royal party were on the way and would soon 
reach the church where watchful eyes and warm 
hearts were waiting to bid welcome to their be- 
loved sovereign and the no-less-esteemed Queen 
Regent, to whom the nation is also most fondly 
attached. The procession entered the building by 



98 

the doorway, over which the " Memorial Window " 
has been placed, which represents in symbolic 
allegory the genealogical record of the House of 
Orange from William the Silent to the coronation 
of the present Queen. 

Tiiis window, a tribute of popular subscriptions, 
is imposing in size and masterly in execution. The 
old legend still holds good, namely, tliat an 
" Orange Sun " always presents itself on all special 
occasions of the House of Orange ; it was so when 
darkness and disappointment in its historic life 
threatened to crush out the existence of the nation 
in the long past. This was verified on August 31, 
1880, when the present queen was born, bringing 
new hopes and life to the nation. In the present 
it was manifested by the clouds lifting and an 
"Orange Sun" bringing brightness over the path 
which led to the church and through its portals, 
making light the outlook to the throne, so soon to 
welcome her Majesty in assuming the responsibili- 
ties as ruler. On her Majesty's entering, the church 
was most gloriously lighted. The sun shone 
out with radiance and the beautiful, now historic, 
window, under which she passed showed forth in 
most minute detail its magnificent historic features, 
while the interior as a whole, with its large floral 
display, bountiful flags, and many emblems of heroic 
decorations, made a most brilliant effect, the great 
" Orancre " light coming; throus/h the many larg^e 
windows at sides and nave making the appearance 
indeed festive in brightness of colors, a most beauti- 
ful, harmonious effect. The audience, largely 
government, army, and naval officials, wore gala 
costume, while all others present were in full dress ; 
the total number of persons present was seven or 



99 

eight thousand, every available space being occu- 
pied. This grand audience awaited the coming of 
the Queen and suite, standing while the organ 
pealed forth its music and a large choir sang the 
national hymn Wilhelmus, which music is known 
to you all. 

On the evening of the coronation day a gala per- 
formance was given in the Theatre at Amsterdam, 
attended only by the Queen, Queen Regent, their 
suites, officials of the court, government, naval 
and army officers and guests. 

It may be interesting to you to know that on 
September 12th, a special Thanksgiving service was 
held in the English Reformed Church at Amster- 
dam, at which our mutual friend, the Rev. Dr. W. 
Elliot Griffis delivered an address upon "God's 
Providence in Dutch and American History," and 
a closing hymn was sung to the tune of Wilhelmus 
of which the words are as follows : 



" Of Nassau and Orania 
A true Dutch princess she ; 
The crown of trusty Holland 
Long on her head may be ! 
Our country she will guard it 
With firm and faithful hand ; 
O God, we humbly pray Thee 
To shield our Queen and Land. 

" Our faith in God ne'er faileth : 
As in the days gone by, 
His providence prevaileth, 
He listeneth to our cry. 
O, Gentle Queen, to guard thee. 
Our lives, our all, we'll yield : 
For us the Nassau princes 
Died on the battlefield. 



lOO 

" We beg of God to grant her 
A long and happy reign, 
That He her Guide and Helper 
Forever will remain. 
When troubles e'er assail her 
Be Thou, O Lord, her Shield ! 
Against oppression ever 
May she her sceptre wield. 

" To God, the Lord of Power, 
We trust our Queen and Land, 
For in the danger's hour, 
He '11 guard both with strong hand. 
Of Nassau and Orania 
A true Dutch princess she ; 
The Queen of trusty Holland 
Her people's pride shall be." 

The coronation ceremonies were of a most im- 
pressive character. No one present can ever fail 
to remember the earnestly distinct manner in 
which her Majesty's address to her people was 
delivered. Her voice, powerful and melodious, rose 
to a climax of most earnest sincerity, void of the 
least tremor, yet most audibly conscious of the re- 
sponsibility she assumed. When the moment of su- 
preme importance to her, the taking the oath of office, 
had come, her voice reached the full extent of the 
building, and no one present, it has been admitted, 
missed a single word uttered. Her voice was more 
distinct than that of most members of parliament, 
all of whom in person took the oath of allegiance 
to the Queen. The entire ceremony occupied fully 
an hour. The Queen and suite retired first, then 
followed officials, ministers, and military, the whole 
audience standing while these passed from the 
building. Those remaining were then given an 
opportunity to view the entire church, before pass- 



XOI 

iiiir out to mingfle with the vast crowds outside, and 
wend their way homeward, or wander through the 
various parts of the city, which as a whole was 
indeed decorated throughout. 

During the day and evening of the installation, 
and for a week following, all Holland had well- 
nieh at some time visited Amsterdam, and until 
after the hours of a new day set in, the streets were 
packed with sightseers and town dwellers. On the 
night of September 9th the city was one glow of 
light, all public and many private dwellings were 
beautifully, some most artistically, decorated, whole 
fronts from street to coping were as one mass of 
flowering plants, others bore the most expensive of 
decorations, no one house without a flag and some 
emblem of holiday attire. From the most aristo- 
cratic to the humblest dwelling in the city, all bore 
evidence of the most general joy, all having to the 
best of their ability responded to make these visi- 
ble tokens show that the response came from the 
sympathetic and joyful hearts of the nation at large. 

During this week of feasting, all sorts of games 
and entertainments were given for the masses. 
Three days of the week business was entirely sus- 
pended, trade and traffic absolutely stopped, rail- 
roads transporting only the mails and perishable 
food. Thus all the available transportation facili- 
ties of the railroads could be applied for carrying 
the people to and fro ; it has been asserted that 
some five hundred thousand visited Amsterdam. 
In certain quarters of the city no vehicle was 
allowed during part of the day, while two even- 
ings, in order to give the people opportunity to 
see the illuminations and so forth, all vehicles were 
barred from the city proper from six o'clock at 



102 

night until one o'clock in the morning;. Thus all 
accidents were avoided, and, \vith(nit the least mis- 
hap, the great installation ceremony has become an 
event of history, of which the nation may well be 
proud. 

I cannot forego in closing to add to my off- 
hand talk the poetic tribute of Holland's so gifted 
and popular romanticist, who is no doubt known to 
most of you under the name of Maarten Maartens 
as the author of sundry well-known novels. His 
coronation tribute embodies the full expression of 
the national esteem and love for the Queen whom 
he, as do all her people, honor as a true daughter 
of the House of Orange, the sovereign to whom 
they most gladly look up, as did the forefathers 
of old, in the times of William the Silent, that 
greatest of their leaders, who then, as they now, 
would willingly sacrifice their all, — goods, chattels, 
and persons.* 

Well may Queen Wilhelmina be called " The 
Queen of all Hearts," for she lives in tJK' life of 
the nation, and every heart throbs with loving 
esteem for her.

"The people are the city." 




HE toast "Our City " was responded 
to in a most cheery and encouraging 
manner by the Hon. Abraham Lan- 
sing, who represents one of the oldest 
Dutch families in Albany. He gave 
a very careful review of the growth of the city from 
its earliest conception, referred to our bi-centennial 
celebration exercises, the presence of Judge Van 
Vorst at that time, and other representatives of 
the Holland Society here with us to-night, in a 
most charming manner ; of the pleasure we expe- 
rienced in entertaining the officers of the Van 
Speyk, gave a short history of the building and 
completion of the capitol, making one of his strong- 
est speeches, and it is with great regret we are not 
able to give more than a mere outline of his 
remarks. 

Owing to the absence of President Raymond his 
toast was not responded to.

SPEECH OF MR. VAN VOORHIS. 

Dutch- Am ERICANIS^f. 

" Mark what unvary'd laws preserve each state, 
Laws wise as nature, and as fixed as Fate." 

Mr. President and Gentlemen : 




E all know what Americanism is, and 
yet it is not easy to i^ive it exact 
and perfect definition. In its largest 
sense It means devotion to and pref- 
erence for our country and its insti- 
tutions. It is a preference for whatever is Ameri- 
can, and an exhibition of that preference. American 
civilization is the product of Americanism. 

Americanism is based on the principle of self- 
government — government of the people, by the 
people, and for the people. It is embodied in the 
Declaration of Independence. It was put into 
form by the constitution of the United States and 
is found in the organic law of the several States. 
It is progressive and aggressive. In a little more 
than a century it has marched from the Atlantic to 
the Pacific and conquered every obstacle in its 
way. 

Americanism is not and cannot be made station- 

104 



I05 

ary. The echoes of its conquering tread reverber- 
ate around the world. Americanism looks to the 
things that are before. It operates not for the 
present alone, but for the future. 

Hawaii, Samoa, and other islands of the Pacific 
ocean have long been under its sway. Indeed, the 
Pacific has practically become an American ocean, 
and when the waterway called the Nicaragua canal 
which Americanism is now constructing, is opened, 
America will be supreme upon that ocean. 

Even Japan has felt its potential influence, and 
the land of the Chrysanthemum is to-day half 
Americanized. Washington, Jefferson, Andrew 
Jackson, and Abraham Lincoln were high priests of 
Americanism, and it numbers among its votaries 
the great statesmen and scholars of the land. 

Just now this nation is engaged in Americaniz- 
ing Cuba, Porto Rico, and the Philippine Islands. 
Those islands, by the fortunes of war, have dropped 
into our custody. Americanism will not desert 
them, nor give them back to savagery, but will 
give them good government and all the blessings 
of liberty. Whenever these islands reach the 
point where they are able to take the reins of gov- 
ernment in their own hands and make self-govern- 
ment a success, the United States will not only 
permit them to do so, but will aid them to accom- 
plish that desirable result. 

There is no imperialism about Americanism. It 
is democratic in its nature, but it is not pessimistic. 
It is decidedly optimistic. The word imperialism 
is a misnomer when applied to the relations of this 
government to our new possessions. Americanism 
is imperial only in its power, and it e.xcrts that 
power for the benefit of the human race. 



io6 

The pessimistic speeches which are made in 
Congress and elsewhere now against expansion 
and imperialism are simply a reproduction of 
the speeches which were made when we took in 
Florida, Louisiana, Texas, and New Mexico. The 
arguments contained in those speeches have 
become threadbare by long use. The speeches of 
the senior Senator from Massachusetts and the 
senior Senator from Missouri against the ratifica- 
tion of the treaty of Paris, call to mind the ancient 
hymn, "Hark, from the tombs a doleful sound!" 

The law of Americanism is expansion. We 
have expanded from thirteen States to forty-five 
States and several Territories. We have expanded 
from five millions of people to seventy-five mil- 
lions. We have expanded our territory by taking 
in all we could get, until the area of this republic 
is perhaps twenty times larger than it was when 
the Government was organized. Alaska was taken 
in under the administration of President Lincoln. 
So it would almost appear that one of the chief 
occupations of our Government during the past one 
hundred years has been expanding its territory. 
Although the hue and cry of imperialism was heard 
whenever the country increased its territory, it was 
a vain cry. There was no imperialism about it. 
The thirty-two States carved out of this territory 
are cogent witnesses to the utter baselessness of 
the charge. If the Cassandras had had their way, 
thirty-two States of the Union would now be under 
European control. The prophets of evil came to 
naught. They could not stay the Americanizing 
progress of the principles of the Declaration of 
Independence. 

Those who believe that America is not compe- 



tent to handle the question involved in the present 
situation of the Philippine Islands, are ignorant of 
the character and capacity of the people of this 
countr)'. If the Yankees cannot handle the Philip- 
pine Islands, nobody can. A little thing like that 
is an easy problem to American statesmen. 

The growth of the United States cannot be 
stopped by any speeches of men in Congress, no 
matter how eminent they may be. It is without 
doubt that, at the ratio of increase in the past, the 
population of the United States by the end of the 
twentieth century will reach three hundred millions. 
The problem is easy of statement. If we have 
grown from five millions of people to seventy-five 
millions in a hundred years, what are the possibili- 
ties for the hundred years to come ? The result is 
too enormous for human belief, and so we don't 
believe it. But that at the end of the twentieth 
century we will have a population of several hun- 
dred millions, the most conservative are compelled 
to admit. 

Here is expansion with a vengeance, and who 
can stop it ? Why should we be permitted to 
expand our population and not our territory ? We 
are compelled to have the people, and we must 
have territory enough for them to subsist upon. 
The law of universal development controls us, and 
its behests must be obeyed. 

Partisan politics have but little to do with Amer- 
icanism. All political parties are based upon it. 
The differences between them relate to the mode 
of procedure. Such parties vie with each other in 
their love of Americanism. Political parties may 
come and go but Americanism goes on forever. 
He serves his party best who serves his country 



io8 

first. Wherever Americanism prevails the people 
are benefited and their condition improved. The 
Stars and Stripes floating over Cuba and Porto 
Rico, gave to those islands, so long the victims of 
misrule, a hope for the future they have never 
before possessed. Americanism will clean the 
cities, purify the pestilential air, and make health- 
ful resorts of those gems of the ocean. It will fur- 
nish to those islands the security of person and 
of property which has never been enjoyed there 
before. It will foster the love of liberty and the 
instinct of self-government. In fact, it will Ameri- 
canize them, and that covers the whole case. 

Americanism holds that public office is a public 
trust, and a trust not coupled with an interest in 
the trustee. It is a trust to be executed in the in- 
terest of the people. And the trustee must be 
held to a strict and rigid performance of the trust. 

If occasionally men get into office for purposes 
of personal aggrandizement ; if they squander the 
people's money, if they use their trust for the juir- 
pose of partisan politics, sooner or later Ameri- 
canism will assert its power and consign them to 
ignominious oblivion. 

" The triumphing of the wicked is short." 

Americanism is grounded in righteousness, and 
the better sentiment of the people, when aroused, 
is always in the majority. I have not time to 
notice a hundred other points in which American- 
ism has given this country superiority over other 
countries. 

And where does the Dutchman come in ? He 
is in it and has been in it all the time. American- 
ism, as we know it to-day, originated in Holland 
and was brought here by immigrants from that 



I09 

countr}-. When New York was settled by the 
Dutch nearly three centuries ago, the Dutch re- 
public was more than a quarter of a century old. 
Its declaration of independence was made in 1581, 
and it furnished Thomas Jefferson a precedent 
from which to draft our own immortal declaration. 
It declared the equality of men, and that govern- 
ment is for the benefit of the governed. In 1583 
the constitution of the Dutch republic was enacted, 
containing forty-nine articles, and the framers of 
our constitution had before them the Dutch con- 
stitution as a model. 

When the Dutchman came to Manhattan Is- 
land he was not a man with a grievance. He did 
not come as an exile. He was not fleeing from 
persecution. Nobody was persecuting him. He 
did not come here to find a place where he could 
worship God according to the dictates of his con- 
science. He possessed perfect liberty at home, and 
he could worship there in any way he wanted to. 

Holland was operating under the law of expan- 
sion, and territory had to be found somewhere for 
the overflow of her population. The Dutchman 
was a great geographer. He visited every sea, 
and explored every known river on the face of the 
earth. He came to Manhattan Island on business. 
He selected it as the best site on the globe for a 
large city. He brought the schoolmaster and the 
clergyman with him, and when he founded the city 
he established the schools and the churches of New 
York. Honesty was his guiding star. He treated 
the Indians gently, and bought their lands and paid 
them the price agreed upon. The result was, the 
colony on Manhattan Island was free from the 
Indian wars which desolated the New England 



I lO 

colonies. William Penn, who treated the Indians 
in Pennsylvania in the same way that the Dutch- 
man did in New York, had lived in Holland, and 
had imbibed the Americanism which existed there. 

For more than two and a half centuries the 
principles which tlu- Dutchmen brought over from 
Holland, and whicli they exemplified in this 
country, have grown into Americanism as it exists 
to-day, and I make the assertion, which I think no 
member of the Holland Society will deny, that the 
Dutchman is the father of Americanism. 

To found a state is the greatest work of man. 
Dutchmen founded this great State of New York. 
Many of the leaders of Americanism in the country 
are Dutchmen. A distinguished Dutchman, the 
esteemed president of our Holland Society, is 
Mayor of Greater New York, the city which is 
soon to be, if it is not already, the largest city in 
the world. 

We have just elected from the State of New 
York to the Senate of the United States, that 
most famous of American orators, and wittiest of 
men, Chauncey M. Depew, one of the charter mem- 
bers of the Holland Society ; and the people of 
the State of New York have put into the executive 
chair of this State the chiefest Dutchman of us all. 

It is pretty hard to say who is not a Dutchman. 
The Holland Society admits to membership only- 
men who are descended in the male line from an- 
cestors who came to this country from Holland 
prior to 1675. The descendants on the female 
line are all left out, though they have just as good 
Dutch in them, and are just as good Dutchmen, as 
any of us. 

No nationality has a distinct existence in this 



1 1 1 



country. The Anglo-Saxons, the Celts, the Teu- 
tons, the Dutch, and all other immigrants to this 
country are so amalgamated that their original 
identity is lost, and they have all become Ameri- 
cans. For all I know, George Dewey is a Dutch- 
man. He certainly acted like a Dutchman in the 
harbor of Manila. Neither Tromp nor De Ruyter 
could have performed the act better. 

I strongly suspect that Shafter has some Dutch 
in him, for he captured Santiago under very dis- 
advantageous conditions, but whether he has or 
not, we all know that he accomplished that victory 
by the powerful aid of the distinguished Dutch- 
man who is our oruest to-niirht. 

And when our great President, William Mc- 
Kinley, has completed his second term, as he 
surely will if he lives, where can there be found a 
fitter man to be his successor, than the present 
Dutch Governor of New York ? Ai^^^j^^-^f" f- -H^^- 






SPEECH OF JUDGE CLEARWATER 

The Dutch as Legal Lights. 

" To whom can riches give repute or trust, 
Content, or pleasure, but the good and just." 

AM tempted to follow the example of 
the old Dutch dominies, who used a 
text as a point of departure, and to 
treat my toast as a pretext for a dis- 
course upon those absorbing topics 
of the day, — Territorial Expansion and Embalmed 
Beef ! The first, however, has been exhausted by 
my distinguished friend from Rochester, and the 
last is now more suggestive of pistols with cofTee 
than merriment after it. Perhaps I had better 
stick to the toast, with an occasional digression 
upon original sin ! 

It was the jurists of Holland wlu) in 1579 
advised William the Silent to form the union of 
Utrecht, the first written constitution of the modern 
world, many of the provisions of which are embodied 
in our own. It was to them that Holland was 
indebted for that epoch-marking constitution, which 
made civil and religious liberty the corner-stone of 



113 

the Dutch republic, and guaranteed to every man 
the right to worship God, privately or publicly, 
according to the dictates of his own conscience. 

It was they who advised the taciturn Stadtholder 
to promulgate that declaration of independence in 
1 58 1 by which the States-General threw off the 
Spanish yoke, an example followed by the English 
a century later when they revolted from the House 
of Stuart, and a hundred years thereafter by the 
American colonists when they proclaimed their 
independence of the British crown. Jefferson, who 
drew our own Declaration, was largely indebted to 
the jurists of the Netherlands for some of its best 
provisions. 

The legal lights of Holland framed that admir- 
able system of common schools, the glory of the 
Netherlands for centuries, and one of the causes of 
the rapid rise of our own Republic. It was they 
who made proceedings in courts of justice open to 
the public when England convicted by Star Cham- 
ber, and Venice by Council of Ten. To them we 
owe that provision of our own constitution and 
Bill of Rio[hts entitlincr the accused to be confronted 
with the witnesses against him and the assistance 
of counsel when too poor to pay one himself ; and 
this was the law of the Netherlands when England 
denied counsel to persons accused of felony, and 
the right to call witnesses in their own behalf 
Under the beneficent codes framed by the lawyers 
of Holland, a citizen of the Netherlands could not 
be arrested without the warrant of a burgomaster, 
unless caught in the commission of a crime. Nor 
could he be kept a prisoner more than three days 
without an examination or trial. They gave to us 
our system of recording deeds and mortgages, and 



"4 

of tlistrict attorneys to represent the orovernment 
in criminal prosecutions. It was they who founded 
the modern system of hospitals, orphan asylums, 
and humanely conducted prisons. We have in one 
respect, however, improved upon their plan, for in 
Holland civic ofifices are conferred upon natives 
only, while here, we usually confer them upon 
residents of foreifjn birth ! 

Among the greatest of Dutch jurists was Hugo 
Grotius, the founder of the science of international 
law, who was not onlj- a great lawyer, but a theo- 
logian, statesman and diplomat. To-day at Wash- 
ington, in London, Paris, and Madrid, where 
diplomats and statesmen are anxiously considering 
the riehts and limitations of the United States in re- 
lation to the colonies of Spain, men are carefully ex- 
amining his monumental work, TJie Rights of Peace 
and War, to ascertain what they may be. His career, 
like that of many other Dutchmen, was a heroic 
struggle against adversity. He joined Oldenbarne- 
veldt and Hoogerbeets in the Arminian agitation. 
Barneveldt was sent to the scaffold, and Grotius, a 
prisoner, to the fortress of Loevenstein, from which, 
by the aid of his Dutch wife and quick-witted Dutch 
maid servant, he eventually escaped in a chest sup- 
posed to contain Greek and Latin folios. Dis- 
guised as a mason with hod and trowel he walked 
across the frontier and reached Paris, where he 
composed within a year that famous work of which 
it has been said that his elegance of diction, the 
pearls from classical antiquity with which he adorns 
his pages, and the humanity of his argument en- 
listed the hearts of all men in his favor. This was 
followed by his Mare Libcrum, the most famous 
argument the world has seen for the liberty of the 



1 1 i 



sea, which still maintains its position as an authori- 
tative treatise upon international law. 

Oldenbarneveldt, Antonius Heinsius, Gerardus 
Vossius, John and Cornelius DeWitt, were all 
eminent among the jurists of Holland. In later 
days we had our renowned Dutch Governor, Petrus 
Stuyvesant, and later still Abraham Van Vechten 
who, educated at the Kingston Academy, was the 
founder of the New York Bar. We have here as 
our guest, the Chief Magistrate of the State, a 
Dutchman who, three years ago, seemed as un- 
likely to reach the gubernatorial chair as any of 
us. I well remember hearing him say at that 
memorable dinner of our Society, when, as one 
of the Police Commissioners of New York, he 
was criticised for enforcing the laws, that in his 
opinion laws were put upon the statute books to be 
enforced, and if it is not intended they shall be, it 
is a mistake to put a Dutchman in office to enforce 
them. And he added, " I should think ill of myself, 
and think I was a discredit to the stock from which 
I sprang, if I feared to go along the path that I 
deemed right, whether I had few friends or many." 
It was an utterance worthy of the race, for Dutch- 
men in all generations have been ready to fight for 
what they regard as right, while conceding to others 
the same liberty of thought and action they claim 
for themselves. The man who talked and acted as 
he did in the face of the bitter attacks of enemies, 
and the half-hearted support of friends, was the 
born leader and natural hero of the chargfe at San 
Juan, and is the safe head of a great commonwealth ; 
for, like the Dutch jurists of the Council Chamber 
of the States-General of Holland, he profoundly 
believes that it is only through following the die- 



ii6 

tales of individual conscience that the elevation 
and progress of the State can be maintained. As 
we compare his attitude with that of many of the 
men who for centuries misgoverned Spain, we real- 
ize why it is she has been a decadent nation since 
the abdication of Charles V, and the accession of 
Philip II, for the wisdom of the ages has taught 
us that sooner or later retributive justice follows 
the violation of immutable laws. 

SPEECH OF DR. MACDONALD. 

A Scotch-Dutchman. Beyond a doubt a Dutch- 
man, though coming to us by way of 
Scotland. 

" The noblest prospect which a Scotchman ever sees is the 
highroad that leads him to Holland." 

The last toast was responded to by Dr. Willis 
G. MacDonald, one of the leading surgeons of 
Albany, a thorough Scotchman, but Dutch withal, 
who delivered a very witty speech.

Rev. Dr. J. Howard Suydam read the poem of 
Dr, Palmer, " Oranje Boven," which is published 
on page 6 of the Year Book, introducing it with 
the following remarks :

" The following poem, ' Oranje Boven,' was pre- 
sented to Queen Wilhelmina on the occasion of 
her enthronization, September lo, 1898. by his 
Excellency, P. Lycklama a' Nyeholt, Royal Com- 
missioner for the Province of Overysel. This 
gentleman was Burgomaster of Leeuwarden, in 
Friesland in 1888, where he gave royal entertain- 
ment to the representatives of the Holland Society 
during their ever memorable visit to the Father- 
land. He has since been Burgomaster of Rotter- 
dam, and in recognition of his distinguished abilities 
the Queen Regent appointed him to his present 
high position. 

" The Queen's Secretary in forwarding to Dr. 
Palmer the usual form of acknowledgment quaintly 
adds, ' Her Majesty is very sensible to this 
homage.' 

" Simultaneously with the presentation of the 
poem to the Queen, Mr. John Hay, Ambassador 
of the United States at the Court of St. James, 
offered it to the editor of The Londojt Times, who 
published it in Literature, the weekly supplement 
to that great journal."

The following account is taken from the Newark 
Evening News : 

The first annual dinner of the Essex County members of 
the Holland Society of New York was held last night at Davis's 
parlors. Thirty-two members and guests were present. Moses 
J. DeWitt, who is vice-president of the parent society, acted as 



I 22 

toastraasler. The first speaker was Warner Van Norden, of 
New York, one of the founders, and a former president of the 
Society. He responded to the toast, " The Dutch and Span- 
ish." " The Dutch of New York and New Jersey," he said, 
"were one in common interest, and in common ancestry. 

" The night before the storming of Sebastopol," continued Mr. 
Van Norden, " the besieging army lay in the trenches in dread 
of the forthcoming battle, and knowing not what the morrow 
would bring forth. The men were of all names, had sprung 
from all nationalities. A sergeant, seeing the sombre faces 
and nervous tension of so many of the men, called for a song- 
And that vast host sang. They sang of love, of home, of all 
who were dear to them ; they sang 'Annie Laurie.' So it is 
with us. We are one in accord and harmony, and we sing of 
love and fraternity. I was brought up to think that the Span- 
ish were the very incarnation of all that was cruel and 
tyrannical. 

"As a student," he continued, "I was accustomed to dwell 
on the atrocities and crimes of Spain, and yet, were the Spanish 
so different from us ? Is it not a fact that we are much alike ? 
We don't know what we would have done surrounded by the 
environments of the sixteenth century. I don't excuse all the 
crimes of the Spanish, but many of them were committed 
because the perpetrators belonged to that age. We don't burn 
heretics now, but it is true enough that not so long ago our New 
England ancestors burned witches. 

" When we read of the conquest of Mexico by Cortez and 
his little band, we see 'a hundred natives and one Spaniard 
killed.' In the great dailies to-day we read 'one American 
killed, a thousand Filipinos slaughtered ! ' Is it not but a repe- 
tition ? Human nature is very much alike. But what was 
done by the Spanish centuries ago was done in the light that 
was given them. I think we should somewhat modify our view 
of those who persecuted our ancestors, for they did not have 
the light of the age in which we live. 

"The Dutch are a modest people," the speaker continued, 
" and the world has not heard much of us. But what has Hol- 
land done for the world ? The great Ai'.glo-Saxon race now 
predominates the world over. It had its origin in Holland, 
Anglo-Saxon literature and civilization, now permeating every 
quarter of the globe, comes but from the Dutch. When we 
come to consider how the Spanish carried their civilization — 



such as it was — into South America, and the islands of the 
Pacific and the Caribean, as the Anglo-Saxons are carrying 
theirs into all parts, there is little left to see of any other race. 
But how differently they work. The Spaniard advances with 
the flourish of banners and blare of trumpets. The Anglo- 
Saxon — well, little is known of the way the Anglo-Saxon 
pioneer and soldier works." 

Theodore M. Banta, Secretary of the Holland Society, fol- 
lowed. He said he had only one thing against Newark. That, 
he said, is that the city was not founded by the Dutch. 

Rev. Dr. David R. Frazer, pastor of the First Presbyterian 
Church, next responded to the toast " Dutch Dominies." Dr. 
Frazer, replying to Mr. Banta's remarks, said : 

" If the early Dutch settlers had been attending to their 
business in this section, instead of being in other parts of the 
State when a British army marched through Newark and 
burned the First Church parsonage, where the records were 
kept, it would be known why the documents could not now 
be found." 

Referring to " Dutch Dominies," the clergyman said that like 
all ministers they must have the essential manhood. Honesty 
and ability are the chief requisites of a preacher, he said, and 
he added that "in no pulpits have ministers stood up more 
nobly in illustration of those qualities than in the pulpits of 
the Dutch churches. 

" In tlie pulpits of any denomination," said the speaker, in 
conclusion, " there are no men for whom I have a deeper 
respect and a deeper love than those who stand up in the 
pulpits of the Dutch Church." 

Alexander Geddes, in replying to the toast, "The Intimate 
Relations always Existing between the Scotch and Dutch," 
said, as a representative of the former race, that the connec- 
tion, to his mind, seemed to have begun "when James III. 
sought of the Dutch an open door in Holland for the Scotch 
commerce. 

"Scotland, too," he said, "received its first constitutional 
monarch from Holland, William I. Incidentally, another bond 
of union is the production of the same sort of liquor. The 
only difference is that the Hollanders call it schnaps and the 
Highlanders call it Scotch whiskey." 

Principal W. S. Willis, of the Fifteenth Avenue Public School 
responded to the toast, "Dutch Women." He paid a warm 



124 

tribute to " the Dutch girls whose smiles warm even hovels and 
make the world better and nobler." 

He proposed a bumper to Queen Wilhelmina, and " the 
health and happiness of her Majesty " was drunk standing. 

Board of Works Commissioner Harrison Van Duyne, in the 
course of brief remarks, said that in this city there was a 
useless waste of the water supply, and that it should cease. 

" If it is stopped," he said, " the supply will be adequate for 
generations to come, with only a small additional outlay. If it 
is not stopped the city will have to look for an additional sup- 
ply, and spend untold amounts of money. We should realize 
the value of our splendid water and stop the waste." 

Brief speeches were also made by C. Edgar Sutphen, former 
Judge Thomas Anderson, Benjamin G. Demarest, Jay Ten 
Eyck and John E. Rowe. The gathering ended with the 
singing of " Auld Lang Syne." 



HOLLAND. 



TRANSLATION FROM THE DUTCH OF JOHANNES POTGIETER. 

By LEONARD C. VAN NOPPEN. 

Gray is thy heav'n and stormy thy strand, 
Naked thy dunes are, and low are thy meadows ; 
Nature form'd ihee with a stepmother's hand ! 
Yet how I love thee, my dear native land ! 

Thou art a fortress amid the fierce brine, 
Raised from the morass by vigorous heroes. 
In vain ocean and tyrant against ihee combine : 
Freedom's pure temple, devotion's true shrine ! 

Fan with thy breath again Liberty's flame ; 
Bloom as thou didst in the days of thy glory ; 
Thee let the oppressed his refuge e'er name. 
Land of my fatliers, my ])leasure and fame ! 




HOLLAND, OUR VADERLAND. 

By general J. WATTS ue PEYSTER, 

Member of the " Maatschappij der Nederlandsche Letterkunde," 
Leyden, Holland. 

" Holland, that scarce deserves the name of land." 



"Glad, then, as miners who have found the ore. 
They, with mad labor, fish'd the land to shore. 
And div'd as desperately for each piece 
Of earth as if 't had been of ambergris ; 
Collecting anxiously small loads of clay. 
Less than what building swallows bear away ; 



How did they rivet with gigantic piles 
Through the centre their new-catched miles ! 
And to the stake a struggling country bound 
Where barking waves still bait the forced ground ; 
Building their watery Babel far more high 
To reach the sea, than those to scale the sky." 

Andrew Marvel. 

" A country that draws fifty feet of water. 
In which men live as in the hold of nature, 
And, when the sea does in upon them break. 
And drowns a province, doth but spring a leak. 
***** 

A land that rides at anchor, and is moor'd. 
In which they do not live, but go abroad." 

Butler.

" Methinks her patient sons before me stand, 
Where the broad ocean leans against the land, 
And, sedulous to stop tlie coming tide, 
Lift the tall rampire's artificial pride. 
Onward, methinks, and diligently slow, 
The firm-connected bulwark seems lo go, 
Spreads its long arms against the watery roar. 
Scoops out an Em])ire, and usurps the shore ; 
While the pent ocean, rising o'er the pile, 
Sees an amphibious world beneath him smile : 
The slow canal, the yellow-blossom 'd vale, 
The willow-tufted bank, the gliding sail. 
The crowded mart, the cultivated jjlain, 
A new creation rescued from his reign. 
Thus, wiiile around the wave-subjected soil, 
Imjiels the native to repeated toil. 
Industrious habits in each bosom reign 
And industry begets a love of gain." 



Goldsmith. 



INTRODUCTION. 



" Hail, holy Order, whose employ 
Blends like to like in light and joy ; 
Builder of cities, who of old 
Call'd tlie wild man from waste and wold. 
And in his hut thy presence stealing, 
l\oused each familiar household feeling : 
And, best of all, the happy ties. 
The centre of the social band. 
The instinct of the Fatherland." 

Bulwer's 'Schiller'. 

LAND OF MY FOREFATHERS (MIJN (ONS) DIER- 
BAAR VADERLAND). 

Phj'sically so small, morally so great — so small 
that its continental territory has an area less than 
one quarter of England alone, — [about that of 
Wales] — and, rejecting those portions which are 
occupied by water-courses, natural or artificial, is 
scarcely larger than the state of Massachusetts, — 
so great that Louis Buonaparte, in his address to 



127 

the Dutch Army, assembled upon the plain of 
Maliban, in 1808, could not refrain — Frenchman 
and Celt (or rather Corsican, a race distinct, szii 
generis) as he was — from this remarkable eulogjf, 
the more remarkable because true : 

" Officers and soldiers ! Your ancestors glori- 
ously bore the standards and flag of their country 
to the extremities of the earth." 

" Far north, Ice-master, Barentz and happier Heemskerck 

drave. 
Erst Arctic's virgin bulwarks burst — to one a glorious grave. 
The other triumphed o'er them ; frore, that his Hollandish 

might. 
Might steer to shear the regions drear, grim with Antarctic 

night ; 
And after frays which mighty praise insure his land ahvay, 
Dying his name's undying fame won Giberaltar's day ; 
Like Douglass, dead, his mighty dread, 'gainst odds, that fear- 
ful fight 
Vast riches gave and made his grave exhaustless fount of light ; 
Towards the West, in Clio's breast has hid the remote day 
When Holland free, in Acadie, trench'd, built, asserted sway, 
'Fore English ship had made the trip, to steal the fruits away — 
Houtman of Gouda, no freebooter. South Holland's merchant 

prince. 
In Java, th' East, laid out the feast, has gorg'd his nation 

since ; 
While round the world, gales friendly whirl'd Hoorn's 

Schouten and Le Maire, 
Cape Horn avows whose heroes brows the rostrate circlets 

wear, 
A score of years, such trophies rears, no other land can show — 
Stern truth, proud boast — on every coast, three centuries ago." 
***** 

If Dutch conduct was so laudable in the youth 
and manhood of their country, its declining years 
found the army ever faithful to the traditions of its 
Maurits and Frederic Henry and ready to maintain 
the luster of its palmiest era. 



128 

How they behaved under that Napoleon whom 
the world styles Great, is likewise a matter of 
history, and redounds to their honor. On every 
occasion which afforded them an opportunity 
the Dutch troops excited the admiration of the 
Emperor and his Marshals, who, whatever their 
faults personal and military, were, at all events, 
capable of estimating soldierly bearing and conduct 
in the field and in battle. Louis Buonaparte bears 
witness to this again and again, in his Historical 
Doctiments and Re/lections on the Government of 
Holland, of which country he tried to be an honest 
King for a period of four years. 

At Austerlitz they were peers of the bravest. 
In the campaign of Friedland they distinguished 
themselves, and Grouchy and other French 
generals, who had the temporary command of 
them, lavished warm praises upon their cavalry and 
artillery. " At the siege of the Colberg," reads the 
dispatch, "the Dutch infantry rivalled in valor 
the French army." In 1807, under Mortier, upon 
the shores of the Baltic, "the Dutch army had the 
greatest share in the various engagements with the 
Swedes and behaved most gloriously." 

" It was the Dutch who compelled the Swedish 
army in Pomerania to a suspension of hostilities " ; 
and thus, in 1807, decided the matter in favor of 
F"rance, upon those coasts, even as at Nyburg, in 
1659, their determined gallantry assured the victory 
to the Danes. Officers and privates vied in doing 
credit to their blood, and " General Mascheck 
stopped the enemy a whole hour at the head of a 
single squadron " of hussars. " The Dutch brigade 
which reached Spain on the 25th of October took 
part in this action " (in the neighborhood of 



129 

Bilboa) on the 31st of that month, "and covered it- 
self with laurels." Marshal Lefebre expressed 
his satisfaction with the conduct of the Dutch, and 
declared that, " it was impossible to act with greater 
valor." In Spain, Chasse laid the basis of that 
reputation which his defence of Antwerp, in 1831, 
crowned. He it was who acquired the sobriquet of 
the " Bayonet-General " from his fondness for using, 
and his troops' success with, that weapon, the 
assumed prerogative of the Englishman. At Ocana 
the courage of his Hollanders won for him deco- 
ration, title, and domains. 

In a Pyrenean mountain pass, those same 
Hollanders saved the army corps of Erlon and 
made their commander a Lieutenant-General and 
Baron of the Napoleonic Empire. In Gallicia, 
near Bonnal, in the battle of the 17th March, 1809, 
" the Dutch Brigade covered itself with glory," 
" advanced against the intrenchments (of the 
Spaniards) with shouldered arms ; this bold ma- 
noeuvre put the enemy to flight and decided the 
victory." Near Ciudad Reale, on the 29th of the 
same month, the Dutch hussars " chareed with 
extraordinary intrepidity and the greatest success." 
General Sebastiani deemed it his duty to make a 
special report of their "brilliant behavior" upon 
this occasion : the Colonel " at the head of one 
squadron of this regiment (say, one hundred men) 
charged a body of Spaniards consisting of three 
thousand foot and a regiment of horse." " Their 
conduct," adds the French General, — well worthy to 
be a judge of valor and military qualities, — "will 
immortalize them." " The courage they displayed 
and the services they rendered on those days have 
been appreciated by the whole army, and particu- 



larly by myself." On tlic 31st of May, 1809, the 
Dutch displayed unusual gallantry in the capture of 
Stralsund, a victory of momentous importance to 
the safety of Napoleon's dominion. Upon this 
occasion the Dutch artillery performed wonders, 
and "with its six-pounders engaged for two hours 
against twenty-four pounders, and silenced the guns 
of the town on the right." Soldiers alone can 
appreciate the dangers of such an unequal contest 
and the glories of a success. Two months after- 
wards (27th, 28th July,) on the distant fields of 
Spain, in the battle of Talavera, "one of the most 
celebrated throughout the Spanish War the Dutch 
Artillery particularly distinguished itself." At 
Flushing, ist-i5th August, the same Arm covered 
itself with laurels in a contest with the English. 
At this very time the Dutch were winning the 
loftiest distinction upon the rugged field of 
Almonacid. Here, as before, their cavalry and 
artillery deserved and received the highest en- 
comiums of King Joseph. " As a reward for the 
good conduct of the Dutch in the Spanish army, 
they were authorized to reckon each of their 
campaigns in the Peninsula for two." 

The Hollanders of the nineteenth century emu- 
lated the temerity of those of the sixteenth, by their 
recapture of Fort Batz from the English. But 
enough has been shown to prove that exalted praise 
of the Vaderland' s Military is not speaking without 
book. Hundreds upon hundreds of instances might 
be added to the list, were it necessary to exhaust 
the record. Another name would be deserving 
mention here, could gallantry and ever}' quality 
which makes the soldier atone, for services against 
his native country. Despot of Java, " chief devil, 



131 

'Moloch' of the Javanese" Marshal, Governor- 
General of the Dutch Empire in the East, Daen- 
dels, " who burst through the great wilderness of 
Java with his great military road," and lives in story 
as the intrepid warrior, the stern disciplinarian, 
the fearless commander, thou wert a type of the 
indomitable Hollander, unchastened by his morality, 
religion, or the most universal love of justice 
peculiar to the breed ! Yes I have a right to make 
this assertion. Produce any Order of Knighthood 
but that of the " Union " which has ever adopted for 
its motto a sentiment derived from those statutes 
which enjoin upon, and teach, a man his duty to- 
wards his neighbor. The war-cry of the Chevaliers 
of the "Union" might be the watchword of the 

pulpit : 

" Doe wel en zie niet om." 
(Do what is right, happen what may.) 

And now, one word about patriotism. Amster- 
dam owes its rise and prosperity to its fisheries, 
particularly the " Great " or Herring Fishery. 
This is still remunerative, but the "Small," or 
Whale Fishery, in which two hundred and fifty 
years ago the Dutch were all pre-eminent, gradu- 
ally became less and less lucrative, until its prose- 
cution entailed an almost certain loss. This fallinor. 
ofT in a pursuit once the most gainful, is due to 
the operation of causes with which the Hollanders 
had nothing whatever to do, and mortal could 
neither overcome nor resist. The ambition of 
Napoleon, the counter-voracity of England, the 
injustice and rapacity of both those powers com- 
bined, labored to destroy a commerce which was 
the world's wonder, the growth of centuries, and 
in a great degree they succeeded. 



" Lie there, mischievous wretch [Napoleon], and corrode all 
around you like a cancer ; 
Swallow the nations up, swallow and hunger again. 
Glutton ! 

« * * « • 

Germany fought and fell ; with the sword you hew her in 

pieces ; 
Holland abandoned her gold, but was oppressed as before : 
Is not Hesperia"s land like a temple by savages plundered ? 
Even from the indigent Swiss, honor is stolen away. 
* » * » * 

Wrecked on your chalky coast [England] are the sacred rights 

of the nations : 
AVhat is your island else but a piratical den ? 
Fire to the world you have set, that, unchecked, you may rob 

in the medley ; 
Like the voracious shark, wander your ships on the sea, — 
* * * * * 

Hear me ! why this dispute ? [England is supposed to retort] 
There is world enough to contain us : 
Greatness and glory you seek ; gain is my wiser desire. 
World's benefactor called, but world's manufacturer also, 
Since I can only be one, I have selected the last ! 
Zealous am I for freedom, I mean the freedom of commerce ; 
Freedom of course for myself, not for my neighbors the same. 
Therefore I offer peace ; let us share the booty between us : 
Green-covered earth shall be yours, mine be the billowy sea " — 

sings the Swedish poet, Esaias Tegner, late Bishop 
of Wexio. 

But let that pass : England's unthankfulness to 
Holland, although far less criminal in intent and 
less terrible in its results, is nevertheless, consider- 
ing her people's intelligence, religious sentiments, 
and blood relationship to the Dutch nation, alone 
to be compared to Austria's ingratitude to Poland. 
I dare not trust my pen to say more — so, to resume 
the subject particularly under consideration, Dutch 
patriotism : — 

" The North Hollanders, however," says Louis 



133 

Buonaparte, when no longer King, "notwithstand- 
ing the expense and loss incurred by the whale 
fishery, persisted in continuing it from a pure spirit 
of patriotism, and from national pride ; and it ap- 
pears to me that this alone would be sufficient to 
refute those who charge the Dutch with selfishness 
and avarice. On the contrary, there is no people 
with hearts more enlarged or more generous and 
who are, at the same time, more moderate and rea- 
sonable in their desires." 

* * * * * 

So small, I repeat, was the contest for the 
possession of the Netherlands between Spain and 
the Sev'en United States of Holland that it excited 
the scorn of the Turkish Emperor, Amurath III., 
who, hearing foreigners dilate upon the torrents of 
blood spilled by the Spaniards in endeavoring to 
enslave the United States, or Provinces, and by the 
Hollanders, determined to be free, he supposed 
that the two nations in question were disputing the 
possession of the most extensive empires. What 
was his surprise, when the object of so many 
murderous battles and sieges was shown to him 
upon the map. " If the business were mine," he 
remarked, in a tone which showed his contempt 
for what seemed to him such a petty affair, " I 
would send my pioneers and make them shovel 

such an insignificant corner of the earth into the 

it 
sea. 

And yet, so great, that Rome, at the zenith of 

her force and fame, with the whole wealth and 

power of the ancient world at her command, could 

not impose her yoke upon the ancient Hollanders 

proper, the Menapii ; so great, that Charlemagne 

the greatest monarch that ever sat upon a modern 



134 

imperial throne, could not enslave them ; so great, 
that the sanguinary bigot history presents for our 
abhorrence, Philip II. of Spain, with the riches of 
the New World at his command, the power of his 
mighty father in his grasp, the influence of the 
papacy,— exerting all its blandishments of future 
rewards, and displaying all its comminatory terrors, 
— to stimulate his peoples and his armies to their 
utmost, as his support ; although originally pos- 
sessed of all their strongholds, and master upon 
every open field, he could not coerce that race to 
remain his subjects who had cheerfully contrib- 
uted one half of his enormous revenues to their 
native-born sovereign Charles V., — a race, who, 
swearing that " they would rather become Turks 
than Papists," — "Liver Turcx dan Paps" — vic- 
tims than vassals, — threw themselves upon the 
mercy of the deep, and became as free in body as 
they had shown themselves free in soul ; and then 
waxed so great that while one foot was planted in 
the Arctic Zone the other rested in the Antarctic 
Circle. The commerce of the world was theirs ; 
their left hand gathered in the riches of the East, 
while their right hand, as instant to the implements 
of peace as to the weapons of land and naval warfare, 
seized wealth and glory at every point to which 
sagacity and fearless enterprise could plan and carry 
out adventure. Holland is the only state of which 
it is recorded that wealth increased, prosperity 
abounded, science flourished, religion blossomed 
and bore fruit, and freedom reigned in the midst of 
a terrific struggle with Spain — a nation of " bound- 
less extent, of gigantic power," and stupendous 
wealth, whose ban-dogs howled and bayed at the 
gates of the Republic. 



135 

Hollanders, and descendants of Hollanders ! Re- 
flect upon the Past of Holland. Her glory is our 
common heritage and possession. We shall do well 
if, emulating, we approach the dizzy eminence of 
our forefathers' grandeur. 

" You require virtues, Sire,"— exclaimed the Minis- 
ter Van der Goes, Grand Chamberlain of the Or- 
der of the Union, instituted by Louis Buonaparte, 
then King of Holland, at the installation of the 
Knights, in the Great Hall of the palace at the 
Hague, on the i6th February 1808, in his ad- 
dress to that monarch, who was seated on his 
throne, surrounded by the great officers, attended 
by pages — " they are what the King of Holland 
has a right to require from a nation that has set 
the example of them to others ; they were the ap- 
panage of our fathers. 

"To require virtues from us is to suppose we 
possess them ! * * Hollanders ! Let us resume that 
noble pride which is not the effect of presumption, 
but springs from feelings of our own worth. Let 
us recollect those days when the simple Province of 
Holland, governed only by its Counts, and much 
smaller than it is in our days, had already attained 
such a pitch of splendor and power that the friend- 
ship and alliance of its Princes was sought by the 
neighboring Kings. From that time the wealth 
and prosperity of this little country excited uni- 
versal jealousy. 

" Let us go back to periods still more remote. 
The name of Holland scarcely began to be known, 
when it already triumphed over the unkindness of 
nature. Supported by indefatigable courage and 
constancy, we had learned to curb the waters and 



136 

subdue the ocean by immense works ; and if sub- 
sequently our faults, our dissensions, the culpable 
revolts of some turbulent lords, involved us in mis- 
fortunes, and reduced us, after a long state of in- 
activity, to be considered no longer as anything 
more than the domain (demesne) of a foreign 
potentate; with what glory did we rise superior to 
that disgrace ! and how great the prosperity that 
has followed those times of distress ! 

" Let us call to mind the times when our fleets 
and armies triumphed everywhere over the haughty 
house of Austria, when we contested the empire of 
the ocean with the English, and strove successfully 
against the united force of the most formidable 
states ! What ! shall not these noble recollections 
inspire us with confidence ? 

" Dutchmen ! was the nation ever wanting to 
itself, as the King has often asked you, when it 
had great men at its head ? Has it not been the 
ornament and astonishment of Europe for its in- 
dustry, its application to literature, to the arts, to 
the sciences, and, lastly, to commerce, which flour- 
ishes only through their means, and cherishes them 
in return ? 

" I need not speak to you of our Maurice, or 
of our Frederic Henry, who may still be quoted, 
even in the age of the most accomplished war- 
rior that ever existed [?], the great Napoleon, 
and under the reign of the brother and pupil of 
that august monarch. I will not mention our 
Coehorn, the emulator and rival of Vauban, or 
our De Ruyter, Tromp, and Hecmskerck, hitherto 
unequalled on the ocean. Can their memory ever 
be obliterated ? 

" Was not Holland the cradle of Erasmus, the 



'0/ 

country of Grotius, Bynkershoek, Vossius, Bur- 
man, Schulten, Huygens, Musschenbroeck, and 
Boerhaave, the retreat of Scaliger, the asylum of 
Descartes, the refuge of Bayle, and the school of 
Peter the Great ? Can a King who patronizes the 
arts, endeavor in vain to revive among us these 
great names, to which such illustrious remembrances 
are attached ? 

" No, Chevaliers, in a country like ours, that 
exists only through industry, science, and art, the 
path of honor is not confined to the hero who de- 
fends it ; it is equally open to the man of learning, 
who imparts to it instruction ; to the skilful me- 
chanic who labors for its preservation ; to the 
prudent and honest merchant who adds to its 
wealth ; to the man of letters who does it honor ; 
and to the citizen who distinguishes himself by his 
virtues and good conduct, — all may equally deserve 
well of their country, all share the affection of a 
wise King, who is a friend to mankind and a father 
to his people." 

These are eloquent words ; but are they not emi- 
nently truthful ? This is a lofty panegyric, but 
would not a mere recital of the facts recorded in 
her chronicles prove a still more splendid encomium ? 

Reader, if you have ever read before, you know 
that no country has ever been greater upon the sea 
than Holland or the United States or Provinces — 
no people have won richer prizes, acquired more 
wonderful influence, or plucked greater laurels upon 
the most unstable of elements. 

" Earth confess'd her power ; she sat like a queen on the 
waters." 

The foregoing pages and references prove that 



138 

the Dutch soldiers of the present era are not in- 
ferior to those of former days — brave, patient of 
fatij^fue, perseveringr, prompt, and sagacious. Bel- 
gium learned it to her cost in 1831, when the Hol- 
landish forces required but ten days to annihilate 
her armies. 





RECORD OF BURIALS IN THE DUTCH CHURCH, 
NEW YORK. 



In preparing for publication the record of burials in the Dutch 
Church in New York it has been deemed most convenient for 
searching to arrange the surnames in alphabetical order and 
chronologically, but to place together all family names which 
appear to be of similar origin, notwithstanding the variations 
of spelling, preserving, however, the spelling of the record in 
all cases. Much the larger portion of the records consists of 

items, such as " child of " ; where the names of the children 

are not given, and as the publication of such items would 
occupy much space and be of comparatively little value, they 
have been omitted.

While no organic connection with this Society is 
contemplated, several of our members have ac- 
cepted positions on the Governing Board. 

Our members in Dutchess County have been 
accustomed for several years to give a dinner at 
Poughkeepsie, on October 3d, celebrating the 
raising of the Siege of Leyden. This year " other 
counties have been heard from." Albany gave a 
banquet in January in honor of our fellow-member, 
Governor Theodore Roosevelt, and Essex County, 
New Jersey, followed with a dinner in March, 
attended by thirty-two members and guests. 

A series of six lectures on Dutch literature was 
delivered in Columbia University b\- I\Ir. Leonard 
C. Van Noppen, under the auspices of the Holland 
Society, which were well attended and very inter- 
esting. 

Among the number of those whose names ap- 
pear on our obituary roll for the year, the most 
distinguished is Hon. Thomas F. Bayard, late 
Ambassador to the Court of St. James. 

Theodore M. Banta, Secretary. 

The election of officers being next in order, the 
President appointed as Tellers, Dr. Edward S. 
Bogert and Mr. John Wesley Jacobus who re-

President Van Wyck appointed Messrs. Warner 
Van Norden, and D. B. St. John Roosa a com- 
mittee to escort Mr. Bergen, the President-elect, to 
the chair. 

Mr. Bergen, in assuming office, spoke as follows : 



220 

Genilcmeti of the Holland Society : 

Some oltl worn-out words are all that come to 
me as I take this chair. In such a presence as 
yours I hesitate to make use of effete expressions 
of gratitude. If I should use such terms you mi;^rht 
think I was speaking like a chairman of a political 
convention who intends to be its boss. You have 
put me on the top round of the Society's ladder, 
but you have enabled me to reach that place only 
because in your kindness and generosity you have 
turned the ladder upside down. 

It is seldom that one has the privilege of survey- 
ing a company of men who have descended so 
gracefully as those who now confront me. Some 
men have descended "not wisely but too well." 
They have descended too far and become a mere 
name and lineage. But you have descended with 
wisdom as well as tact, and have selected your an- 
cestors with rare discernment! It is only your 
proverbial Dutch modesty which prevents your 
boasting of those meritorious qualities which you 
have gained merely because of your skill in the 
arts of inheritance ! 

It is pleasant to come to a reunion feast like this 
in the presence of your illustrious selves, especially 
because of the fact that there is no extra charge for 
the supper. It is also pleasant to reflect that our 
supper will not create any disturbance in the politi- 
cal world. It is neither a ten dollar dinner nor a 
one dollar dinner. 

Fellow members of the Holland Society, I can 
only say in the words of the old tongue of our 
sires, the men of New Netherland, the sounds of 
which come out of the past and only belong to 



22 1 

history now, but which still stir with emotion every 
ruddy drop of that old blood which beats in our 
hearts and makes us kith and kin together, bound 
by a loyal reverence for the memory of the men 
and women with brave and honest minds and pure 
and loyal hearts who begot us, — in the old tongue 
of two and a half centuries ago, — " Veele danke. 
Myn hert is opgevollen." 

Dr. D. B. St. John Roosa, on behalf of the Com- 
mittee on Statue to William the Silent, presented 
the following report : 

On December 21st last the Committee mailed to 
every member of the Society a circular enclosing a 
subscription blank, requesting replies to be sent to 
Warner Van Norden, Esq., Treasurer of the Statue 
Fund, who reports the result as follows :

requesting an answer. About seventy letters of 
promise and regret were received, and the follow- 
ing subscriptions were pledged :

Respectfully submitted, 

D. B. St. John Roosa, 
George M. Van Hoesen, 
Egbert L. Viele, 

Committee. 

After presenting the preceding statement, Dr. 
Roosa made a few remarks, in which he stated that 
the Committee was appointed by the President in 
the autumn, and that the names of the subscribers 
of one thousand dollars each were as follows : 
Robert A. Van Wyck, William Waldorf Astor. 



John L. Riker, Egbert L. Viele, John H. Starin, 
and Samuel D. Coykendal. Besides this, a sub- 
scription of five thousand dollars to complete the 
sum needed has been made, but the name of the 
subscriber was for the present withheld. He con- 
tinued that it was not expected that the whole 
sum would be raised in the Holland Society, but 
that citizens of Dutch descent, even if not from 
the male side, and all New Yorkers who feel an 
interest in the civil and religious liberty which 
William the Silent maintained in Holland, and 
which was brought to this country by the descend- 
ants of those who fought under him, would be asked 
to aid us. A prominent citizen, one of the Trus- 
tees of Columbia University, has promised to assist 
the Committee. A letter addressed to the Com- 
mittee by a descendant of the private secretary of 
William of Orange, living in Delft, and also a 
member of the Washington family, has been re- 
ceived, in which Dutch subscriptions were proffered. 
The seal of the writer contained the stars and 
stripes of the American flag. The Committee 
believed that the Dutch had waited long for a 
monumental recognition of their work in the New 
World, and that when it was erected it would be 
worthy of the achievements of the Dutch race. 
The Trustees thought that the sum of sixty thou- 
sand dollars was requisite for a fitting memorial, 
and that William the Silent, although not a Dutch- 
man by birth, was really the Father of the Dutch 
Republic and of the principles of liberty under 
which we are happily living without a full recogni- 
tion of their source. 

The following resolution presented by Mr. John 
W. Vrooman was unanimously adopted : 



224 

Resolved, That the Holland Society of New York desires to 
record its thanks to the retiring President, The Hon. Robert 
A. Van Wyck for his devotion to the Society and for his 
loyalty to its best interests. He has ever been ready to join in 
every good word and in every good effort to preserve the 
Society and enlarge its usefulness. 

During his entire official connection with the Holland 
Society he has shown that fidelity, sincerity, and simplicity 
which are characteristic of true Dutch blood. 

IMr. Theodore I\I. Banta offered a resolution in 
favor of altering the badge of the Society by sub- 
stituting the effigy of Williarn the Silent for that of 
Philip II., and also the motto on our seal for 
the present motto on the badge, " Faithful to 
the King, etc." After discussion participated in 
by Judge Van Hoesen, Dr. Roosa, and Mr. Hub- 
bard, the resolution was laid upon the table. 

Mr. L. B. Van Gaasbeek presented the following 
resolution, which was adopted : 

Resolved, That the President of the Holland Society appoint 
a Committee of five members to confer with the Trustees in 
regard to more frequent meetings, for literary and social pur- 
poses, during the year, said Committee to report at the next 
Annual Meeting of the Holland Society. 

The President appointed the following-named 
ofentlemen as the committee : Louis B. Van Gaas- 
beek, William L. Brower, Rev. J. Howard Suydam, 
Irvingf Eking, and A. L. Smidt. 

Adjourned. 

TiiLODORE M. Banta, Secretary. 




IN MEMORIAM. 



Dr. John GRhx.ouv Truax was born in Dur- 
hamville, Oneida County, N. Y., March 5, 1848, 
and died in New York, February 16, 1898. 

His education was acquired in the district schools 
of Oneida and Madison Counties, New York, in the 
medical colleges of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and in 
the Rush Medical College, Chicago, 111., from the 
latter of which he was graduated. He practised 
medicine in the Northern Peninsula of Michigan 
until 1876, when he removed to New York and 
established himself in Harlem. He was instru- 
mental in organizing the Harlem Hospital — on the 
staff of physicians of which he continued till his 
death. For several years he was President of the 
New York State Medical Society, and was one of 
the Trustees of the Mott Memorial Library. 

He was a man of great physical strength, of a 
genial disposition, and inspired strong friendships. 
He was a brother of our fellow members. Judge 
Charles H. Truax and Chauncey S. Truax. 

John Demarest was elected a member of the 
Society, June 24, 1889, and died in Newark, N. J., 
May 20, 1898. He was born in the City of New 
York, August 21, 1830, and attended the "Old 
Ninth Ward," No. 3, in Grove Street, where after- 
wards he became a teacher. He was subsequently 
Vice-principal of Grammar School, No. 42, in Allen 



226 

Street, and Principal of No. 75, in Norfolk Street, 
continuing in the latter position until about 1S96, 
when he resigned after a service of almost forty 
years in the schools. 

He was a man of quiet tastes and found his 
greatest pleasure in his home. 

Jacob Wendell, of New York, who was one of 
the constituent members of the Society, died May 
21, 1898, at his home, 8 East Thirty-eighth Street, 
after an illness of two weeks. He was the second 
surviving son of the late Jacob Wendell, of Ports- 
mouth, N. H., where he was born July 24, 1826, 
and the sixth in descent from Evert Jansen Wen- 
dell of Albany, and was descended from some of 
the earliest emigrants to the colonies of New York, 
Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. 

In 1843 '''^ went to Boston, where, in 1854, he 
became a member of the firm of J. C. Howe & Co. 
In 1863 he removed to New York, wht^e he took 
a principal part in the business of this firm until its 
dissolution, in 1874. For twenty-four years he had 
been at the head of the business formerly in their 
charge, first under the name of Wendell, Hutchin- 
son & Co., and later under that of Jacob Wendell 
& Co. He was a director in the Merchants' Bank, 
the Continental Insurance Company, and the North 
British and Mercantile Insurance Company, and for 
many years he had been a vestryman of Calvary 
Church. 

In 1854 he married the youngest daughter of the 
late N. A. Barrett, of Boston, who, with their four 
sons — Barrett, Professor of English Literature in 
Harvard University; Gordon, Evert Jansen, and 
Jacob — and six grandchildren, survives him. 

The integrity and the simplicity of Mr. Wendell's 
character endeared him alike to those who knew 
him in business and in private life. 

At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the 
Merchants' National Bank the following minute 
was adopted : 



The Board of Directors of the Merchants' Na- 
tional Bank record with profound sorrow the death, 
on Saturday, the 21st instant, of Jacob Wendell, 
for fifteen years a director of this bank and the 
trusted officer and valued friend of his fellow- 
members at the Board. 

Mr. Wendell's well-disciplined mind, cultivated 
by education ; his spotless integrity, unblemished 
by any compromise with wrong ; his sound judg- 
ment, guiding an intelligent industry ; and his 
refinement of disposition, ever reflected in the cour- 
tesy of his demeanor, long ago earned for him a 
high place among the honored and successful mer- 
chants of New York. He displayed the same quali- 
ties in the performance of his trust as a Director 
of this bank ; and among us, as elsewhere, his 
prudence, wisdom, and fidelity were joined with a 
singular gentleness and modesty; so that while we 
placed our sure reliance in his wise counsel, our 
hearts were drawn to him by the gracious ties of 
friendship. Happy and beloved in his long and 
well-spent life, his memory will not be effaced from 
the minds of us who have had the good fortune to 
be his associates, and we make this record of him 
for those who shall come after us. 

We tender to his wife and children our respectful 
sympathy. Realizing our own loss, we are sensible 
of the sorrow of his family. 

Resolved, That a copy of the above minute be 
sent to the members of the bereaved family. 

J. W. Harriman, Cashier. 

Mr. Samuel M. Van Santvoord, a well-known 
and highly respected citizen of Albany, died on 
Monday morning September 19, 1898, at the 
residence of his son-in-law, Mr. E. B. Toedt, at 
304 Washington Avenue, at the age of seventy- 
nine years, after a short illness. 

He was born in the city of Schenectady in 1819, 
and was a lineal descendant of the Rev. Cornelius 
Van Santvoord, who came to this country in 1718, 



228 

and a few years later settled in Schenectady as 
pastor of the Old Dutch Reformed Church. 

Mr. Van Santvoord was but five years of age 
when his father, Zeger V^an Santvoord, died, and 
much of the support of his widowed mother soon 
fell upon him, and soon there appeared those strong 
characteristics of true manhood which were the 
mark of his entire life. 

After a few years of earnest work at the old 
Lancaster school in Schenectady, under its princi- 
pal, Nicholas Van Vranken, he acquired a fair 
knowledge of the practical branches of education. 

He early was attracted to a business career, and 
the necessities of his family life pressing upon him, 
at the age of eleven he entered a dry goods store 
as a clerk. Here he devoted himself absolutely to 
his business ; becoming a partner in the house at 
the age of twenty-one. 

In 1853 Mr. Van Santvoord removed to New 
York City, where for nine years he engaged in the 
wholesale dry goods trade. In 1862, with the 
added knowledge and deeper insight into his 
business by reason of his metropolitan experience, 
he came to Albany where he identified himself with 
the business life of the city. 

In 1869 he entered the store of William M. 
Whitney, and soon afterwards became a general 
partner of the concern, to which for twenty years 
he devoted his energy and zeal, finding full oppor- 
tunity for the exercise of his marked business tact 
and industry, and his complete fitness for mercantile 
pursuits. In 1889, at the age of seventy he retired 
from active business life, to take a well-deserved 
rest. 

On the 29th of October, 1850, Mr. Van Santvoord 
married Mary A. Lovett, daughter of Henry 
Lovett, Esq., of Schenectady. Mrs. Van Santvoord 
died in 1892. Mr. Van Santvoord became a 
member of the Holland Society of New York in 
1886. 

He always identified himself closely with the 



229 

many interests of the city, and by his noted capacity 
for making friends and keeping them, became a 
man of note and inlluence. He had served the 
community well antl left an example of geniality 
and good-will that is rarely seen. He was a self- 
made man of the type of which this country is 
justly proud, but he was also a fine type of the 
Christian gentleman. 

Notwithstanding his active life, he always was 
deeply interested in religious matters, and was 
devoted to his church. He became associated with 
the Church of the Holy Innocents immediately 
upon his residence in the city, and was soon made 
a vestryman, becoming junior warden in 1873, 
and senior warden in 1884. His interest in religi- 
ous, social, and political matters never flagged, and 
for many years he had shown a zeal and strength 
which many a younger man might have craved. 
His will be a loss which will be felt deeply. Many 
will miss the warmth and strength of his friend- 
ship ; many will miss the inspiration of his genial 
presence. We mark the passing of one who, in 
every relation of his life, was faithful, tried, and 
true. 

Thomas Fr.\nxis Bavard was one of the oldest 
members of the Society, having been elected 
November 17, 1885. At the annual banquet of 
the society, January 17, 1893, he delivered a 
scholarly address which is published, with a portrait, 
in the Year Book for 1893. 

The following sketch is from the Evening' Post. 

Thomas F. Bayard died at 4 : 30 o'clock yester- 
day afternoon, September 28, 1898, at Karlstein, 
the summer home of his daughter, Mrs. Samuel 
D. Warren, near Dedham, Mass., after an illness 
of six weeks. His death was without pain. The 
body will be taken back to his native State, Dela- 
ware, and the funeral services will be held on 
Saturday in the old Swedes' Church at Wilmington. 

Thomas Francis Bayard was the son of James 



2 30 

A. Bayard, and was born in Wilmington, Del., on 
October 29, 182S. Originally intended for a 
mercantile life, he was, after leaving school, placed 
in a mercantile house in this city, but on tiie death 
of his elder brother in 1848, he returned to Wil- 
mington and studied law. He was admittetl to 
the bar in 1851, and was appointed United States 
District Attorney for Delaware, but resigned the 
following year. He removed to Philadelphia in 
1855, '^"'^1 entered into partnership with William 
Shippcn, with whom he practised law for two years, 
and then returned to Wilmington. There he con- 
tinued the practice of law again until, in 1868, he was 
elected to succeed his father in the United States 
Senate. He had previously achieved prominence 
by the delivery of a remarkable speech at Dover, 
in 1 86 1, in favor of peace with the South, being at 
that time a Lieutenant of a newly organized militia 
company. He was reelected to the Senate in 
January, 1875, '^^^^ again in 1881, serving con- 
tinuously until March 4, 1SS5, when he was 
appointed Secretary of State by President 
Cleveland. 

On the day he was reelected to the Senate for a 
full term, his father was also reelected a Senator 
from Delaware, to serve for the unexpired part of 
his original term, that being the only case of a 
father and son being voted for by the same 
Legislature to fill the senatorial office. 

In the Senate, Mr. Bayard served on the finance 
and judiciary committees, and the committees on 
private land claims, library, and the revision of the 
laws. In October, 188 i, he was elected President 
of the Senate pro tem. He was a member of the 
Electoral Commission of i876-'77, a conspicuous 
upholder in Congress of Democratic doctrines and 
State rights, was voted for in national convention 
as a candidate for the presidency in 1880 and 1884, 
and was the fifth member of his family (including 
his great grandfather. Gov. Bassett) to occupy a 
seat in the United States Senate. 



In March, 1893, Mr. Cleveland appointed Mr. 
Bayard Ambassador to the Court of St. James, a 
position which he held for four years, returning to 
the United States in May, 1897. During his stay 
in England he won great popularity, not only by 
his social charm and his ability as a public speaker, 
but by his expressed admiration for the English 
national character and his constant endeavor to 
promote the friendliest relations between Great 
Britain and the United States. Some of his speeches, 
notably one at Birmingham, provoked sharp criti- 
cism in this country. His good offices, however, met 
with warm recognition both from his own country- 
men in England, who presented him with a loving- 
cup as a token of their affection and esteem, and 
from Englishmen generally. Few ambassadors, 
indeed, have ever been the objects of more social 
attention. One noteworthy feature of his ambas- 
sadorship was the return to him, at the instigation 
of the Archbishop of Canterbury, for presentation 
to the Governor of Massachusetts, of the log of the 
Mayflower, which had long lain among the archives 
in Lambeth Palace. Mr. Bayard bore a prominent 
part in the negotiations relating to the proposed 
arbitration treaty between England and the United 
States, which was rejected by the United States 
Senate. 

Next to his aristocratic descent, the two things 
in which Mr. Bayard felt most personal pride were 
his fine equestrianship and his wonderful resem- 
blance in face to George Washington. Of all 
open air sports he was more or less fond, but horse- 
manship exceeded the rest of the catalogue in his 
affections. He always rode a splendid animal, and 
the more skittish it was the better he liked it. He 
was very much delighted, and showed his pleasure 
with the frankness of a schoolboy, when President 
Arthur once complimented him on his appearance 
in the saddle. 

Mr. Bayard was a statesman " of the old school " 
— in his dignity of manner, his high ideals of 



public service, his stern devotion to duty. lie had 
convictions, and he had also the courage of those 
convictions. When the "soft-money" wave swept 
over his party twenty years ago, he refused to tloat 
with the tide, and on other occasions he did not 
hesitate to stand out against the majority of his 
associates when he thouglit that they were in the 
wrong. The final surrender of his party to Bryan- 
ism was a terrible irrief to him. 



& 



Fk.vnci.s Skii.lman, who joined the Society 
January 30, 1S90, died at Roslyn, Long Island, 
September 5, i S98. He was descended on his 
paternal side from Thomas Skilhnan, who came to 
this country from England with Governor Nicoll 
in 1664, and on his maternal side from Adrian 
Van der Uonk, who came to this country from 
Holland in 1656. He was the eldest and last sur- 
viving of four children of Thomas Skillman and 
Catharine Onderdonk, and was born at the Walla- 
bout, September i, 1817, and in his twelfth year took 
up his residence with his grandfather, Joseph On- 
derdonk, at Flower Hill, near Manhasset, Long 
Island. In 1841 he was elected Captain of the 
Hempstead Troop of Horse, having previously 
served as cornet and lieutenant. In June, 1842, 
he married Sarah Ann Schenck, and his grand- 
father settled him on a farm at Roslyn, where he 
ever after resided. In April, 1851, he was elected 
Justice of the Peace in the Town of North Hemp- 
stead, in which office he served for twenty-four 
consecutive years. In 1861-63, he was Justice 
of the Sessions in Queens County. On May 16, 
1865, his first wife having previously deceased he 
married Josephine Dorothy Onderdonk, a daugh- 
ter of the late Judge Horatio G. Onderdonk of 
Manhasset. In the years 1867 and 1868 he repre- 
sented the First District of Queens County in the 
State Assembly. During his entire life he took 
an interest in State politics, and was high in the 
councils of the Democratic party. He was always 



■JO 



interested in matters of public concern, and beinj^ 
a man of strong character, his views were held 
in high esteem by those who knew him best. In 
1892 he published a genealogical work entitled the 
Skiilmans of New York, having devoted much 
time to the accumulation of data bearing on the 
subject. He passed away at a ripe age in the full 
possession of all his faculties at his handsome resi- 
dence in Roslyn, survived by his widow and his 
dautrhter Elizabeth Onderdonk Skillman. His 
remains were interred in the churchyard of the 
Dutch Church at Manhasset. 

Daniel P. VanDorn died at his home on West 
Main Street, Freehold, N. J,, at ten o'clock, on 
Wednesday evening, November 23, 1898, from a 
stroke of paralysis. 

Daniel VanDorn was one of those true men 
and gentlemen who command the respect of every- 
body. In appearance he was a fine type — tall, 
broad shouldered, strong, and noble looking. His 
courtly manner well fitted his handsome appear- 
ance, and with it went character and intelligence 
which elicited for him the highest admiration and 
esteem. This courtly demeanor was ever with 
him, at home or abroad. No circumstances ever 
seemed to startle him into any other bearing. In 
his family it was present with every act, and kind 
politeness was one of his notable characteristics. 
He was thoroughly upright, liberal in his opinions, 
and generous with his means. He was highly hon- 
ored in Monmouth county where he spent his whole 
life, and was known e.xtensively as a public-spirited 
man and a good citizen. 

He was born near Marlboro, on the VanDorn 
homestead, October 7, 1820, and went to school 
at Matawan and later at Lenox, Mass. After fin- 
ishing his studies he returned to the homestead 
and engaged in farming. Upon the death of his 
father he received a portion of the farm and later 
he purchased the rest, and was still in its possession 



234 

when he died, although he had not been in active 
management for many years, and had, in the mean- 
time, taken up his residence in Freehold. As an 
agriculturist he was very successful. 

He was a member of the Monmouth County 
Agricultural Society, and took an interest in all 
matters which were for the benefit of the public. 
He was active in securing the branch of railroad 
between I'Veehold and Alatawan, now merged into 
the New Jersey Central system. He was elected 
as a Democrat (to which party he always adhered) 
to the State Legislature in 1854; he served as a 
member of the Board of Freeholders, and held 
township offices. In all he was firm in his in- 
tegrity and in his purpose to serve the public. 

Mr. VanDorn's religious proclivities were with 
the Dutch Reformed Church. Rev. I. P. Brokaw 
conducted the funeral at his late residence, on 
Saturday afternoon, and the burial was in Maple- 
wood cemetery. 

The deceased leaves a widow, who was Miss 
Anna J. Roche, of North Hadley, Mass., and one 
son, Wm. VanDorn, who occupies a position in 
the First National Bank of Freehold. 

Zaccheus Ber(;en was born at Roycefield, near 
Somerville, N. J., September i, 1829. After a 
short business experience in Somerville he removed 
to New York about 1850, and in 1856 became a 
partner in the cooperage firm of R. A. Robertson 
& Co., which he continued in his own name after 
the death of his partner in 1886. For nearly fifty 
years he was a highly respected citizen of 
Brooklyn. 

He united with the Society March 29, 1888, and 
died October 11, 1898. 

Dr. Evert Peek Van Efps, a well-known physi- 
cian of Schenectady, N. Y., died of pneumonia at 
noon January 7, 1899, at his residence, 508 State 
Street. He was about fifty years of age, and had 



235 

practised medicine in Schenectady ever since his 
graduation from the Albany Medical College in 
1 88 1. Dr. Van Epps was a son of the late 
Andrew C. Van Epps of Schenectady. He is sur- 
vived by Mrs. Van Epps, who is a daughter of the 
late Taylor Johnson, and one son. Several years 
ago Dr. Van Epps was county physician. 

As a man and physician he was highly respected. 
He united with the Holland Society, March 28, 
1889. 

Rev. John N.vtii,\mel Jansen, died Friday, 
January 13, 1899, at his residence, 344 Sumner 
Avenue, Newark. 

He was elected Vice-President for Essex County, 
New Jersey, in 1895 and 1896. He was greatly 
interested in the Society and was usually present 
at every meeting. He had secured a ticket for our 
last annual dinner, but was taken ill and died sud- 
denly two days after the date of the dinner. 

The members of the Society in Essex County 
appointed a Committee to prepare a minute in 
reference to the death of Mr. Jansen, which reads 
as follows : 

John Nathaniel Jansen, elected October 25, 
1886, died at his home in Newark, N. J., January 
13, 1899. 

He was born March i, 1827, at Marbletown, 
N. Y. He graduated from Kingston Academy, 
and entered Rutgers College, in the Sophomore 
Class, in 1845, ^"^ graduated in 1848. In the fall 
of the same year he entered the Theological Semi- 
nary at New Brunswick, N. J., graduating in 
185 I. He was licensed to preach by the Classis 
of New Brunswick, and in 1852 was ordained to 
the ministry and installed pastor of the Reformed 
Church of Guilford, N. Y. In 1863 he accepted a 
unamimous call from the church at Pompton, 
N. J., where he remained until 1883. These were 
his only pastorates. 



236 

After his retirement he had great satisfaction in 
servinix as a supjily for the pulpit wherever the 
opportunity was given. He had especial enjoy- 
ment in Sunday School work in the Foster Home 
for half-orphan children in Newark, N. J. Mr. 
Jansen was a man of faith, of prayer, of studious 
habits, of rare conscientiousness, a liberal giver, a 
genuine friend, a sympathetic pastor, and an 
instructive preacher. For nearly forty-eight years 
he was a minister of the Reformed Church, which 
he loved. For this long period he served his own 
generation by the counsel of God, and fell asleep. 

Samuicl Muu.n'T SciiENCK died at his residence 
near Hightstown on Sunday morning, January 15, 
I S99. Mr. Schenck w-as a lawyer of prominence 
who had spent his professional career at Hights- 
town but came of an old Monmouth family, and 
his life anterior to entering upon the practice of 
his profession was passed in and near Freehold. 
The date of his birth was April 3, 1838. His 
father was the late Henry Schenck of F"reehold, 
and his mother, before her marriage, was Mary 
Ann Mount, both of widely known and highly 
respectable families. On the paternal side Mr. 
Schenck traced his lineage to the time of Charle- 
magne, his earliest known ancestor being the 
Knight Edgar, surnamed the Schenck (de 
Schencker, the cup-bearer). 

Samuel Mount Schenck was educated at the 
Freehold Institute under O. R. Wells, and read 
law with the late A. R. Throckmorton and with 
James Otterson of Philadelphia, and attended 
lectures in the law department of the University 
of Pennsylvania. Admitted to practice as an 
attorney in November, 1862, and as counsellor 
three years later, he settled at once at Hightstown, 
where he has been prominently identified with and 
largely influential in all matters relating to the 
welfare of the town and community. He was one 
of the organizers anil for a long time a director of 



^o7 

the First National Bank and mainly instrumental 
in bringing about the consolidation of the old bank 
with the new institution. Associated with several 
other Jerseymen of prominence in the ownership 
and management of the Pennsylvania, Slatington 
and New England Railroad, of which he was at 
one time Vice President and Treasurer. 

As a lawyer, Mr. Schenck ranked as an able and 
conscientious advocate and adviser and has trans- 
acted a large business. The members of the 
Mercer County Bar, of whom he was the oldest in 
point of practice, have taken appropriate action in 
view of his demise, and his funeral at Hightstown 
on Wednesday was largely attended by a representa- 
tive class of citizens who held the deceased in high 
esteem. 

Mr. Schenck resided on his farm just outside the 
borough limits of Hightstown on the road to Eton 
(formerly Milford) where he had gathered around 
him a vast store of articles of virtu and relics of 
Revolutionary interest and accumulated a choice 
library. 

He leaves two sons, Edgar Grandin and Harry 
Lloyd Schenck, the latter now at Princeton Uni- 
versity, and a daughter, Helen Louise, the wife of 
Rev. Albert Reid, of the Kingston Presbyterian 
Church, a son of G. Spafford Reid, of English- 
town, in this county. 

William Manning Van Heusen, who was 
elected a member March 14, 1895, was born in 
Albany N. Y., May 5, 1865. He entered Harvard 
Colletre with the class of '88 — attended Columbia 
Law School and received the degree of LL. B., 
from Union Law School. He practised law in 
New York, until his failing health compelled his 
removal to California, where he died, at Pasadena, 
February 3, 1899. 

Abram Douwe Ditmars, for many years a well- 
known lawyer of New York, with an office at 61 



238 

William Street for upward of thirty years, died 
February iq, 1899, at his residence, 612 Carlton 
Avenue, Brooklyn. Mr. Ditmars was born in New- 
town, February 14, 1822. He began the study of 
law under John L. Riker and was admitted to the 
bar in Brooklyn in 1844. He married Lavinia 
Riker, daughter of John L. Riker, in 1856. In 
July, 1870, he was elected the first mayor of Long 
Island City, a position he held successfully for 
three years, and in April, 1876, was again elected 
to that office. He became a member of the 
Society April 6, 1886. 

John Butler Adriance, one of New Haven's 
oldest and most respected citizens, died at his home, 
April 5, 1899. 

He joined the Holland Society, October 22, 
1890, and was deeply interested in it. 

He was born in New York City in 1824. He 
went to New Haven when a young man, and learned 
the carriage-body maker's trade. Subsequently he 
engaged in the business of manufacturing carriages 
and carried it on until his death. 

Among the fraternal orders Mr. Adriance was 
known in Masonry, being a member of Wooster 
Lodge. Early in his life he was prominent in Odd 
Fellowship, and in 1847 ^^ ^^''^^ Noble Grand of 
Harmony Lodge. 

He was a member of Trinity Church and a 
regular attendant, and was a vestryman for a 
number of years. 

He was of a most genial and afTable disposition. 
He was twice married. His first wife was a 
daughter of Arnold Hine of Orange. She died 
about 10 years ago. About si.\ years ago he married 
Mrs. Hart, who survives him. 

The deceased was a member of the Quinnipiack 
Club, and was always known as "Uncle John." 
He has been a member of the Court of Common 
Council, and also served on the Road Commis- 
sion. He was also a candidate for Mayor at one 



239 

time, and ran for Representative to the General 
Assembly. Mr. Adriance was also well known 
in business and social circles, and was one of 
the oldest business men in New Haven. He was 
one of the original stockholders in the Derby 
Turnpike Company, and held its stock until the 
termination of its existence a few years ago. 
He had always been in good health until a year 
ago, when he was stricken with a paralytic shock. 
He rallied from this, however, and though not in 
the best of health had managed to attend to 
business. Several days ago he was taken to his 
bed with congestion of the brain, which resulted in 
his death.

THE DUTCH EAST INDIES, OR 
INSULINDE. 



By D. VERSTEEG. 

" It appears to be the belief of most foreigners 
that the British Empire as we Icnow it to-day is 
the product of the machiavelHan astuteness and 
unscrupulousness of British statesmen accompanied 
by an almost unparalleled tenacity of purpose. 
Nothing can be further from the real facts, and it 
would be much more true to say that we have 
simply blundered into most of the desirable places 
of the earth. While our governments have held 
back, oppressed with ' the craven fear of being 
great,' and have discouraged colonial extension in 
every way, individual explorers, traders, mission- 
aries, pressing forward under every difficulty, have 
forced their hands and made them, unwillingly, 
the rulers of the greatest empire the world has 
ever seen . . . From the nations of the continent 
of Europe he (the Englishman) has nothing to 
learn except what to avoid. Their system, 
their objects, and their ideals are entirely dif- 
ferent from his ; and, as he thinks, inferior. 
Their success from any point of view has not been 
apparent, and it is not likely that England will be 
tempted to imitate them." — Joseph Chamberlain, 
in Scribjier' s for December, 1898. 

245 



246 

The total area of the Dutch colonies in America 
and Asia amounts to 782,803 square miles, with a 
population of somewhat over 34,000,000. Of these 
colonial possessions the islands of the East Indian 
Archipelago are the most important as they are 
also the longest under Dutch sway. Those islands, 
with their present population of nearly 34,000,000 
scattered over an area covering 736,400 square 
miles, were, at the beginning of this centurj', 
deemed so valueless and so profitless that England 
did not want to be burdened with them. The 
English considered tlicm, as the Afrikander his- 
torian Hofmeyr, expresses it so pithily, " als een 
been, dat te min vleesch aan zich had en het pluizen 
niet betaalde," (as a bone containing too little 
meat to make it worth while to pick it). It there- 
fore relieved Holland of the trouble of governing 
Ceylon, the Dutch settlements in South Africa and 
some West Indian Islands, which were very valua- 
ble. At present, owing to a wise and beneficent 
rule, the Empire of Insulinde has so considerably 
increased in value that the disinterested English- 
man, seeing the early error of his ways would, 
" in a noble cause," gladly and all at once relieve the 
Dutch of the trouble and anxiety of ruling the islands 
if he could only decently do so, and without creating 
too much of a stir. He therefore does it by degrees 
and stealthily. He has already made a beginning 
with Borneo where, notwithstanding treaties and 
boundary conventions and settlements, he has, with- 
in half a century, appropriated a considerable por- 
tion of the territory, commencing with the island of 
Labuan on Borneo's northwest coast. He certainly 
has the ships and the guns, and as long as he faces 
only a weaker state "might makes right" with him. 



247 

After the King of Spain had prohibited the 
Dutch from trading with the Portuguese for the 
products of the East Indies and other Oriental 
countries the Dutch merchants resolved to cut 
out a way for themselves, and equipped several 
expeditions for the purpose of discovering a north- 
eastern passage along the northern coasts of Scan- 
dinavia, Russia, and Siberia to the Indies. All of 
those voyages, though fruitless, covered the Dutch 
with immortal fame. They were among the very 
first to navigate the polar seas, and the names of 
Barentsz, Van Linschoten, Heemskerck, De Veer, 
and Rijp are household words wherever the story 
of their daring exploits is known. After much 
treasure and many lives had been sacrificed in the 
vain attempts at reaching the Indies by way of a 
northern passage, the Dutch at last resolved to 
take the Cape route in the face of Spanish and 
Portuguese opposition. In 1595 Jan JanszMolenaer 
and Cornelis Houtman, after a perilous voyage, 
reached the longf-soug-ht-for land of riches. After 
their return, in 1597, several more daring navi- 
gators followed in their wake, and from that 
time on the closest relations have existed between 
Insulinde and Netherland. On March 20, 1602, 
the Dutch East India Company was incorporated, 
and in the same year a fleet, equipped by the 
newly founded Company, set sail for the islands. 
Several advantageous treaties were entered into with 
native chiefs and princes. Several forts were built 
and military posts established for the protection 
of the vast commercial interests of the Company. 
On March 12, 1619, the famous Governor-General 
Jan Pietersz Coen founded Batavia, which in 
1896 had a population of 115,567. The seat of 



248 

government was now removed from Ambon to the 
new city, which during the earlier years of its exist- 
ence had many a narrow escape from falling into 
the hands of native as well as European enemies. 
Gradually the whole of the Archipelago was, either 
directly or indirectly, brought under the sway of 
the Company, one of whose first measures was 
the suppression, as far as possible, of piracy. Sev- 
eral of the governors-general appointed by the 
Company were real statesmen, and not only did 
much to promote the country's prosperity, but also 
rendered great service to the cause of science and 
geography. Pieter Carpentier, Coen's successor, 
sent out several exploring expeditions, which discov- 
ered New Holland, (present name Australia), the 
Gulf of Carpentaria, Nuytsland, Arnhemsland, etc. 
Under Governor-General Hendrick Brouwer, Bor- 
neo's east coast was for the first time explored 
by Dutchmen, while during Antonie Van Die- 
men's administration the peninsula of Malacca was 
conquered from the Portuguese, and various em- 
bassies were despatched to the continent of Asia, 
resulting in favorable treaties with many Oriental 
potentates. One of the principal exploring ex- 
peditions undertaken during his rule was by Abel 
Tasman who in 1642 and 1643 discovered Tas- 
mania or Van Diemen's Land, and New Zea- 
land. Van Diemen himself, in 1645, built two 
churches at Batavia, and after his death in the 
same year was succeeded by Cornelis Van der 
Lyn. (An ancestor of the celebrated American 
painters ?) This governor was especially successful 
in strengthening the authority of the Company on 
Java and in the Moluccas. In 1674 the first Malay 
dictionary was published by Dr. Gueynier, while 



249 

in 1679 a " bergraad" for the mines was appointed 
on the west coast of Sumatra, and in 1681 the 
gold mines of Salida on Sumatra were worked 
for the first time. Under Governor-General Joan 
Van Hoorn, in 1705, the Company not only con- 
cluded a most favorable treaty with Mataram, but 
the whole of western Java was ceded to the Dutch, 
who now were virtually masters of the whole island 
with the exception of some states in the interior. 
Van Hoorn was succeeded by Abraham Van Rie- 
beeck the great son of the yet greater founder 
of Cape Colony. Under his administration several 
useful public works were undertaken, among others 
a large road to the south coast of the island, while 
in 171 5 he introduced, near Batavia, the cultiva- 
tion of coffee, which in after years proved to be 
one of the greatest blessings to the people of 
Insulinde. In 1733 Governor D. Van Cloon 
instituted a Council of Mines, consisting of seven 
members, while in 1751 an edict was issued by 
Governor Jacob Mossel against the luxurious hab- 
its and ostentation of Batavia's burghers who, in 
1778, founded the Batavian Society of Arts and 
Sciences, which still flourishes. 

Various causes, such as the war against Eng- 
land in 1 78 1, the loss of ships and of nearly all 
its possessions on the continent of Asia, curtail- 
ment of its monopoly, a too expensive administra- 
tion, lackof systematic management, favoritism, and 
other causes had bankrupted the once opulent and 
powerful East India Company. In i 798 the Govern- 
ment of the Batavian Republic (as Netherland was 
then called) took over the company's territories, 
while the company itself was, in 1800, dissolved. 
In November, 1802, a committee was appointed. 



250 

consisting of such eminent statesmen, lawyers, mer- 
chants, and men of affairs as J. Meerman, Wm. 
Six, J. F. Pontoi, C. A. Verhuell, D. Van Hogen- 
dorp, S. C. Nederburgh, and Robert Voute to 
advise the Government concerning the colonies. 
The committee, on August 31, 1803, submitted its 
report, but the deplorable condition of the country 
prevented it from being carried out. A foreign 
invader held sway, and the English, for the sake of 
preventing the colonies from falling into the hands 
of the French, took charge of them, under promise 
of restoring them when the Dutch should again be 
free. For several years the Dutch tricolor disap- 
peared from the seas, and was only displayed 
on the land from the small commercial post or 
factory on the little Island of Decima opposite the 
city of Nagasaki in Japan. After Napoleon's 
defeats in 181 2 and 1S13 the Dutch, in the latter 
year, expelled his troops from the country, and 
again took their place among the nations. By 
the treaty of London, on August 13, 18 14, the 
English, partly for political reasons, partly because 
they were comparatively valueless, restored ^to 
Holland the greater portion of its colonies, though 
it was not until 18 19 that the last transfer was 
made. Afterward many an upright Englishman, 
perceiving the country's phenomenal development, 
has roundly abused the government of that time 
for its lack of foresight and astuteness in not 
retaining much more than it did ! 

After the final surrender of Insulinde, the 
government immediately resolved to push its de- 
velopment witli all their might. Gradually the 
abuses, which had crept in during the times of the 
East India Company, were abolished, and a pa- 



ternal rule was established which, however, did not 
answer very well, and also had to be abandoned. 
Yet, especially on Java, which, at the time, hardly 
numbered 5,000,000 of inhabitants, agriculture and 
horticulture were considerably extended and es- 
pecial attention was paid to indigo, cotton, tea, 
tobacco, and other staples for the European mar- 
kets, while the cultivation of the cochineal plant 
was introduced in 1827. In 1828 the Dutch rule 
was extended over the western half of New Guinea, 
and at present the Dutch flag still floats over about 
one third of the island. It may not be out of place, 
in connection with the Dutch occupation of part of 
this island, to point to the fact that millions of 
square miles of Australia have never been explored, 
and that, if actual settlement only confers terri- 
torial rights, the English have no claim to at least 
nine tenths of that continent. In 1830 the famous 
statesman and philanthropist, Count Johannes Van 
den Bosch, became governor-general and by him 
the system of cultures was introduced. The basis 
of this system was the cultivation of staple articles 
for the European markets, to be sold at fixed prices 
by the people to the Government, which, if it should 
lose on one or more products, was almost certain 
to recoup its losses by the higher market-price of 
the others, and thus while the producers derived no 
benefit from the rise in the markets, neither did 
they sustain losses from their decline. This sys- 
tem remained in vogue for nearly forty years, but 
after many modifications and changes was virtually 
abolished in 1865. 

Lack of space renders it impossible to even touch 
upon the later history of Insulinde. But every un- 
prejudiced traveller who has visited the Dutch 



colonies in the Indian Archipelago has borne wit- 
ness to the almost phenomenal success of the 
Dutch rule in those islands, in regard to the wel- 
fare and the progress of the native population, 
especially where they are more directly and con- 
tinually under Dutch influence. In many sections, 
also, the people demonstrate their satisfaction with 
the Dutch rule by carrying a large Dutch tlag be- 
fore them on festive occasions, when going in a 
body to their work, or at other popular gatherings, 
and no general function is deemed quite enjoyable 
without the presence of the flag. 

The head of the Government of the Dutch East 
Indies is the governor-general, at present the Chev- 
alier Carel Herman Aart Van der Wyck who, after 
successively filling several minor positions, was in 
1893 appointed to this, the highest of^ce attainable 
by a subject not of royal blood. The office of gov- 
ernor-generjj of Insulinde is deemed so important 
that the Queen and her Minister of the Colonies can 
only make the appointment with the unanimous 
consent of the entire council of ministers, while 
only men of the highest character and integrity, 
diplomatic and administrative genius, are honored 
with this post. The present incumbent, not only 
possesses all of the above qualities, but also " had 
acquired his laurels in the India civil service, and 
passed through nearly every rank, finishing with 
that of vice-president of the Council of the Dutch 
East Indies." Therefore a man thoroughly ac- 
quainted with the needs and conditions of Queen 
Wilhelmina's Indian wards. The office of gov- 
ernor-general is the more important because, though 
circumscribed by rules and regulations, much must 
necessarily be left to his own judgment and tact.

not only in his dealings with the widely divergent 
interests he is called upon to watch, but also in his 
relations with neighboring colonies. This is es- 
pecially the case in regard to the English who, 
when it is not expedient to rob the Dutch of their 
own, must show their bullying disposition by all 
the time interfering and meddling, for an ulterior 
purpose, in the affairs of the country. A some- 
what hasty or undiplomatic viceroy might, like a 
second Tromp, plunge his country in a disastrous 
war which would admirably suit the virtuous Eng- 
lishmen, because then they could "by right of con- 
quest " with a clean conscience before the world, 
take as much of the country as they could master ! 

For the purpose of checking and guiding the 
chief magistrate of Insulinde, the Council of the 
Dutch East Indies has been instituted, consist- 
ing of five members and a secretary, all men of 
known ability and integrity, and large experience 
of Indian affairs. Though the governor-general is, 
in a few cases, required to act only with the full 
consent of said council, in most other matters of 
government he is merely obliged to consult them 
and ascertain their views without being held to 
follow them. Said members, also, may be sent on 
diplomatic or other important missions, not only 
throughout Insulinde, but even to Siam, China or 
Japan. Negotiations or relations with other gov- 
ernments are conducted through the minister of the 
colonies at the Hague. 

The next most important civil branch of the 
Government is the general-secretariat, some idea 
of whose importance may be formed by even a 
partial enumeration of the many affairs it has to 
supervise and direct if necessary. All the various 



254 

departments of the service report to this general- 
secretariat, and though it does not itself do any 
governing, it has the actual control and supervision 
over all executive departments. It is, so to speak, 
the eye through which the governor-general super- 
vises and knows everything in the service. Among 
innumerable other matters, its eye goes over the 
European civil officers, the judiciary, the police, 
instruction, Christian, Mohammedan, and other re- 
ligions, the civil - medical and veterinary service, 
consular and general matters, agrarian affairs, cul- 
tures, forestry, statute-labor, mining, public works 
of every kind, contracts and requisitions of supplies 
from the mother country, international and native 
afTairs, political matters, internal administration, 
sea passports, military and naval affairs, militia, 
military equipments, budget, bookkeeping, tax- 
ation, government monopoly of salt, post and 
telegraph, commerce and navigation, archives, 
index, agenda, the great register for real estate, 
etc. The entire government of Insulinde is 
centralized in this general-secretariat. For the pur- 
pose of conducting this, the most important of the 
governmental machinery, the general-secretariat 
is organized into eight sections, each of which, 
under its own chiefs and with its own clerks, under 
the general supervision of the general secretary 
and his assistants, attends to a portion of the work. 
Next in importance is the general chamber of 
accounts, consisting of a president, a secretary and 
six members, assisted by seventy-three officials of 
higher and lower degree, whose sole duty consists 
in auditing the accounts and books of all the re- 
ceiving and disbursing officers and governmental 
bodies of the entire Archipelago. 



255 

Then comes the Department of Justice which, 
under the general direction of a director and a 
secretary, is divided into five sections, and has 
authority in such matters as rules and ordinances 
for the police, change of name, limited liability 
companies, naturalizations, incorporations, civil, 
commercial, and criminal law, copyrights, trade 
marks, industrial property, flotsam of the sea, ex- 
tradition of criminals, legal decisions, the general 
administration of prisons and of the quarters for con- 
vict-laborers, the location of prisons, legal demands 
against the government, statistics of the adminis- 
tration of justice and of prisoners, budget for the 
judiciary, adjustment and payment of claims, and 
also the administration of and general supervision 
over the " Wees en Boedelkamers " (orphan and 
estate courts) so well and favorably known also 
in the history of New Netherland. 

The supreme court of Netherland, consisting 
of a president, a vice-president, and thirteen coun- 
cillors is, of course, also the highest court of 
appeal for the Dutch East Indies. Directly below 
this highest judicial court in the mother country 
comes the High Court of the Dutch East Indies 
which is located at Batavia, and consists of a presi- 
dent, three vice-presidents, and eleven councillors 
or associate justices. Directly below this are the 
Councils of Justice, three of which reside on Java, 
in the principal cities, Batavia, Samarang and 
Soerabaya, and vary from eight members at Bata- 
via to five at Soerabaya. Directly below these are 
the " landraden " or country councils, ninety of 
which are established on the islands of Java and 
Madura alone. The special feature of these "land- 
raden " is that they are made up of prominent 



256 

natives whose ranks are indicated by various titles 
and a distinct uniform, while the president of the 
court is always a European jurist. Besides these 
there are in the so-called " X'orstenlanden," or 
princely domains of Java, the residential councils, 
presided over by the principal European official, 
and whose members are all European jurists. 
There is also a criminal court, at which the resident 
presides, but whose members are natives of high 
degree. Besides the above courts on Java and 
Madura, there are about a hundred lower courts in 
the various islands of the Archipelago, some pre- 
sided over by the assistant resident, others by the 
comptroller, others by a judicial officer, and whose 
members sometimes consist of natives only, and 
sometimes of Europeans and natives. The above, 
even the highest, are civil courts, but for the army 
and the navy there are special courts, the highest 
of which, the high military court of the Dutch East 
Indies, consists of the high court of the Dutch 
East Indies and three head ofificers of the army. 
Besides this highest court there are three military 
courts on Java, and seven for the islands outside 
of Java, while the "council of discipline for the 
Netherland-India merchant marine," consisting of 
a president and three members, also sits at Batavia. 
Fifty-eight lawyers are registered who may do 
business before those different courts, while not 
less than 274 " deurwaarders " or process-servers, 
in addition to those specially attached to the 
"country councils" and other courts, often attend 
to minor legal matters. On Java and Madura 
there are not less than 261,080 Chinese, while in 
the entire Archipelago their number amounts to 
nearly 500,000 so that for their benefit eight court 



257 

ofificials attend to Chinese affairs only. Where 
there are so many languages spoken as in the 
Archipelago the need for interpreters is specially 
great, and not less than thirty-five philologists, 
some only for two, some for as many as four lan- 
guages, have been sworn as official translators and 
are steadily employed in the courts and other depart- 
ments of the government. The "Wees en Boe- 
delkamers " for the administration of the estates of 
orphans and intestates, etc., are established wher- 
ever the Dutch flag is supreme in the islands, and 
where the population is too small for a "chamber" 
there are agents appointed to attend to the matter. 
The chamber at Batavia is about the most cosmo- 
politan in the country. There are European, native, 
and Chinese members, while the chambers at 
Samarang, Soerabaya, Padang, and Makassar are 
hardly less cosmopolitan in their composition. 

Even the flotsam of the sea is looked after by 
specially appointed officials, in most instances the 
harbor-master, the collector of the port, the " post 
holder " or other officers who take care of every- 
thing of value washing ashore in their respective 
districts. 

The Department of the Interior, as its name im- 
plies, attends to the civil government of the coun- 
try. As such it has charge of the government 
of Europeans, natives, and foreign orientals, all 
of whom, however, are as much as possible ruled in 
conformity with their own customs and, wherever 
practicable, by officials of their own race, subject 
however to the supervision of government officials, 
who, especially in regard to native chiefs and 
princes, guard against abuse of power, and oppres- 
sion of the native population. This department. 



258 

also, has direct control of the police, European as well 
as native, the civil guard, and other military organi- 
zations not directly belonging to the army, the ter- 
rier, the civil veterinary service, agriculture and its 
branches, the pearl and other fisheries, immigration, 
water transportation, and numerous other matters. 
Long experience and a thorough knowledge of 
the character of the aborigines have taught the 
Dutch that the people can best be governed by 
rulers of their own race. Consequently, especially 
in the government of dessahs, or communes, the 
principle of self-government under native heads has 
been retained, while often large sections, especially 
on Java and Sumatra, have been intrusted to the 
rule of native princes named regents, sultans, etc., 
who are controlled by the government and super- 
vised by European officials. Other sections or 
islands are presided over by European officials, 
styled governors, and these governorships are sub- 
divided into divisions, presided over by residents, 
assistant residents, controllers, and assistant con- 
trollers, while small islands or isolated posts or 
settlements are in the charge of post-holders and 
other officials of a lower grade, many of them 
natives. In a brief review like this no more can 
be said about this most important matter of inter- 
nal crovernment, which, in its entire conception, 
shows the most masterly statesmanship and capac- 
ity for government. In order to show how far 
the Dutch have adhered to the principle of permit- 
ting the native population, under the almost im- 
perceptible, but yet most effective supervision of 
the general government, to be ruled by their na- 
tive princes and chiefs, the following enumeration 
will serve as an illustration : 



259 

On Java four native princes rule over nearly one 
quarter of the island. One of these native princes, 
the Sultan of Djokjakarta, is burdened with the 
following names : Hamangkoe Boewono Senopati 
ing Ngalogo Ngabdoer Rahman Sajidin Panoto- 
Gomo Kalifatoellah the Vllth. 

On Sumatra not less than a hundred native 
chiefs of all ranks govern sections of the island. 
Dutch Borneo is ruled over by at least twenty-five 
native princes, each of whom is the nominal ruler 
of a large territory. 

Celebes has not less than fifty-seven native 
princes while one hundred and ten other native 
rulers are employed in governing the populations 
of the smaller islands. 

All of these derive their authority from the 
CTovernor-general at Batavia, and in case of abuse 
of power, tyranny, or extortion from their nominal 
subjects, are promptly called to account, and, if 
necessary, punished with deposition and banish- 
ment to some distant part of the Archipelago. As 
was said before, the Department of the Interior not 
only has charge of the civil government but also 
of the civic guards, to which belong all Europeans 
and native Christians between the ages of eisfht- 
een and forty five. This civic guard is not only 
made use of for police duty, where necessary, but 
also to garrison fortresses and posts when the 
regular troops are out on an expedition. There 
are also native civic guards, called Barisans, under 
their own native officers, to whom a European of- 
ficer, usually a captain of infantry, is attached as 
instructor. 

Especially on Java, where the population within 
three quarters of a century increased from five 



26o 

to twenty-six millions, the question of the food 
supply is a very serious one, and the government, 
for several decades back, has seen the necessity of 
preserving and caring for the forests as regulators 
of the rainfall. On this account a thoroughly 
trained and most efficiently organized forestry ser- 
vice has been instituted, whose sole duty consists in 
the scientific supervision over, and the wise preser- 
vation of, the forests wherever such is necessary. 
This service, under a head inspector and three 
inspectors, employs nearly a hundred specially 
trained foresters, overseers, surveyors, and other 
forestry officials, while for the survey of the lands, 
the drawing of maps, and the registration of land 
titles, about one hundred and fifty additional sur- 
veyors are needed. Artificial irrigation, also, 
constantly occupies the attention of the govern- 
ment, and millions have been e.xpended in aque- 
ducts and watercourses, the Solo-valley system 
alone costing nearly eight million dollars. 

Passing by the civil veterinary and the govern- 
ment warehouse service we now come to the depart- 
ment of instruction, public worship, and industry, 
a somewhat incongruous combination, but which, 
owing to the highly specialized organization of 
all branches of the department, works smoothly 
enough. The Dutch East Indies possess every 
branch of instruction, except the highest as given 
in universities and institutions of a similar nature. 
There are institutions for boys and girls sepa- 
rately and also those where there is co-education. 
Further, there are distinct schools for European 
and for native youths, as well as institutions where 
scholars of European and native parents sit side 
by side on the same benches and receive the same 



26l 

instruction. The higliest institution for learning 
is the Gymnasium Willem III. at Batavia, with 
thirty-two instructors. Next come the higher 
burgher schools, the burgher schools, the technical 
schools, the trade schools, and the primary schools. 
For the purpose of training teachers a number 
of teachers' colleges are scattered over the prin- 
cipal islands. More than si.x hundred European 
teachers are employed in the government schools, 
while there are also large numbers of private and 
mission schools, many of which receive govern- 
ment subsidies. Several thousands of native 
teachers, also, give instruction in the lower 
branches, many of them in Dutch, which they 
studied in the training schools for native teachers. 
Even preparatory schools are not lacking, and the 
larger centres of population boast Frobel schools, 
or kindergartens, as well as Sunday-schools and 
simple " bewaarscholen," or asylums for children 
too young to attend the primary school. 

The Dutch government pays part of the salary 
of every lawfully ordained and called minister 
of nearly everj' recognized religious organization. 
This custom enables us to know that there are 
sixty-eight Protestant ministers and fifty-seven 
Roman Catholic priests in the Dutch East Indies. 
There is also an Armenian congregation and a 
British Protestant church at Batavia, but for- 
tunately the number of Britishers there is not yet 
large enough to turn Batavia into a second Jo- 
hannesburg or North Borneo. About a hundred 
and fifty Protestant missionaries, divided over thir- 
teen missionary societies, labor in all parts of the 
Indian Archipelago, and the result of their labors 
is especially visible in the Minehasa on the island 



262 

of Celebes, where nearly the entire population has 
been civilized and Christianized, and enjoys a high 
degree of prosperity. The number of native Chris- 
tians at present does not fall far short of half a 
million, about fifty thousand of whom are Roman 
Catholics, which church employs twenty male and 
two hundred and thirty-nine female religious 
teachers and missionaries. 

In a country ruled over by a nation which has 
always maintained such a prominent position in 
the realm of arts and sciences, it is not at all 
strange that there should exist a number of insti- 
tutions for higher culture. The Batavian Society 
for Arts and Sciences is chief among them, and 
numbers among its honorary members such exalted 
personages as the King of Siam, and Grand Duke 
Alexis Alexandrovitch of Russia. Next come the 
Royal Institute for the Philology and Ethnology of 
the Dutch Indies, the Indian Society, the Royal 
Institute of Engineers, the Royal Society of Natu- 
ral Philosophy in the Dutch East Indies, the Society 
for the Promotion of Medical Science, the Archeo- 
logical Society at Djokjakarta, the Indian Society 
for Scientific Research at Batavia, and many others 
of a like nature. But the State Botanical Gardens 
at Buitenzorg are famous all over the world. This 
scientific institution, founded in 18 19, under Profes- 
sor Reinwardt, has, through its eight sections, not 
only made possible the systematic study of the flora 
of the Indian Archipelago, but has also been of in- 
calculable practical benefit to the development of 
the country's resources by the scientific study of 
the staples of Indian agriculture, horticulture, 
forestry, and other branches of husbandry, such as 
the properties and cultivation of medical plants, etc. 



263 

Nor does one need to look in vain for philan- 
thropic institutions. Numerous such institutions 
are a credit to the country and to the people who 
founded them. There are committees for the sup- 
port of indigent Christians, especially needed in a 
countr}^ where the adoption of Christianity by 
natives often makes them social pariahs among 
their own people, and deprives them of the oppor- 
tunity of earning a living. Then there are Red 
Cross societies, numerous "funds" to assist de- 
serving people who are temporarily embarrassed, 
poorhouses and homes for aged people, orphan- 
ages, Protestant and Catholic schools and insti- 
tutions for instructing and educating orphans, 
instruction in " physical culture " for the people, 
branches of the Dutch "Charitable Society," so- 
cieties for " Christian charity," societies for the 
support of widows and orphans of missionaries in 
the Dutch Indies, societies for assisting sailors and 
soldiers, military " at homes," purses for indigent 
students, " school clothing and nourishment funds," 
charities conducted by the Free Masons, societies 
for the nursing of the sick, societies for the pre- 
vention of cruelty to animals, burial funds, asylums 
for immigrants, public libraries, and numerous 
other institutions, showing that the charitable 
spirit has been rather quickened than deadened 
under the influence of a tropical climate. 

Five chambers of commerce and industry look 
after the interests of their constituents, while about 
sixty foreign consuls study the commercial possi- 
bilities for the nations they represent. All kinds 
of minerals, in paying quantities, are stored in the 
soil of Insulinde, and the government does all in 
its power to develop mining. For this purpose it 



264 

employs scores of mining experts, while minin^j 
operations by private parties, as well as by the gov- 
ernment itself, are conducted all over the islands. 

The department of civil-public works, which has 
charge of the technical details in regard to build- 
ings, bridges, roads, river and harbor improve- 
ments, aqueducts, irrigation, railroads, steam 
power, etc., employs over six hundred civil and 
mechanical engineers, architects, surveyors, and 
other technical experts. The mail as well as the 
telegraph service, and most of the railroad and 
local narrow-gauge lines, are state institutions, on 
account whereof this department has the manage- 
ment of several thousands of employees. The tele- 
phone system is still principally in the hands of 
private undertakings, though some of the lines are 
managed by the state. 

The last, but by no means the least, of the civil 
departments is that of finances. The principal 
sources of revenue of the (jovernment are the so- 
called personal tax, — which is in reality a tax upon 
dwellings, carriages and carriage horses, furniture, 
and servants, — licenses, import duties and the ex- 
port duty on sugar, excises, the land tax, the " cul- 
tures," vendue offices, and other less important 
sources of revenue. Among the highest paid of- 
ficials in the civil service are those connected with 
the revenue. The head inspector receives an an- 
nual salary of fourteen thousand four hundred 
guilders or nearly six thousand dollars ; the two 
next in rank get four thousand eight hundred dol- 
lars ; the two following receive three thousand 
eight hundred and forty dollars, and the two lowest 
inspectors are paid three thousand three hundred 
and sixty dollars per annum. These poorly paid 



265 

head officials have the supervision over, and are in a 
manner responsible for, several hundred officials 
under them. Yet one never hears of cases of 
"illicit gains at the expense of the people gov- 
erned." While the salaries are certainly not high, 
they seem sufficient, while the incumbents are not 
only certain of keeping their positions during good 
behavior, and of promotion in rank when serving 
faithfully, but at their superannuation or disable- 
ment in the service, are sure of a pension, for 
which, however, they must pay themselves through 
contributions to the general pension fund, for 
which purpose a certain percentage of their salary 
is deducted every month, and which contributions 
they lose, together with their pension, in case of 
dishonorable dismissal from the service. And the 
plausible Joseph Chamberlain dares to hint that it 
is necessary to pay his immaculate countrymen the 
excessive salaries they receive in the English 
colonial service for the purpose of preventing 
them from taking " illicit gains " ! Salaries, for in- 
stance, which devour fifty per cent, of the revenues 
of the unfortunate island of Jamaica, right at our 
very door, and used to eat up nearly the same 
amount of the annual revenues of Cape Colony, 
when that country still was an English crown 
appanage ! 

The government of the Dutch East Indies has 
adopted the principle that all arable land not law- 
fully possessed by individuals, and further, forests, 
mountain slopes, river banks, etc., belong to the 
state. In theory nine tenths of the soil of Java 
and Madura now belongs to the state, without, how- 
ever, giving it the absolute disposal of all, because 
the use and occupancy of much state-owned soil is 



266 

minutely circumscribed by ancient writs, usages, 
and other limitations. Only very rarely does the 
government sell any of its land, but gives it out on 
long leases. When letting pieces of land, or as the 
price for permitting the use of certain tracts of 
land, the government, nearly seventy years ago, 
obliged the lessees or users to cultivate certain pro- 
ducts, especially coffee, indigo, tobacco, sugar, and 
others, for which the producers were to receive 
fixed prices from the government. This system, 
known as the " culture system," has received the 
highest praise from some and the deepest execra- 
tion from others. More than thirty years ago the 
system was virtually abolished for all " culture pro- 
ducts," except the coffee, the government culture 
of which, however, is entirely shorn of its monopo- 
listic features, so that at present several times 
more private than government coffee is marketed. 
In 1854 the state also introduced the cultivation of 
the Peruvian bark, which has proved one of the 
greatest blessings ever conferred by a government 
on its people. The cultivation of the great staples 
for the world markets is at present mostly conducted 
by Europeans. And wherever Europeans have 
taken in hand the cultivation of products of the 
soil, want among the natives has disappeared, they 
become prosperous, and the country is able to sup- 
port a much denser population than in any purely 
agricultural district in Europe. And the same can 
be said in regard to mining and industrial centres. 
The cultivation of sugar alone, for instance, has of 
late years distributed annually over twelve million 
dollars among the people of the sugar districts. 

Millions upon millions of Dutch capital are em- 
barked, not only in East Indian agriculture, but 



267 

also in mining and industrial undertakings. Dutch 
enterprise keeps open the communication between 
the colonies and the mother country through a 
number of fleet and commodious ocean steamers. 
" The Royal Packet Line " of Amsterdam, for in- 
stance, employs thirty-four, the steam navigation 
company " Ocean " eleven steamers for the regular 
Indian service, while the navigation company 
" Nederland " and the " Rotterdam Lloyd " provide 
Insulinde with a weekly mail service. The steam- 
boat communication between the various islands of 
the Archipelago is almost entirely due to Dutch cap- 
ital and energy. Near the close of 1S97, not less 
than two hundred and forty sea-going vessels were 
employed in facilitating the intercourse between 
the various harbors and islands. The majority 
of these are sailing vessels, their capacity ranging 
from fifteen register tons for the schooner Ar- 
kassa to fifteen hundred and seventy for the steamer 
Gouvernetir Generaal 's Jacob. And let it here 
be stated that, since the repeal of the differential 
duties in 1873, Dutch commerce enjoys no priv- 
ileges not also given to that of every other nation, 
while since the same year the Indian contribution to 
the Dutch finances has also ceased. If those writing 
on Dutch colonial affairs, and Dutch matters in gen- 
eral, would only consult contemporary sources of 
information instead of fossilized and antediluvian 
ones, much misconception would be prevented. 
The Dutch move too. 

For the purpose of facilitating the country's devel- 
opment various banks operate in Insulinde. 
The principal banking institutions are the Java 
Bank, with its numerous agencies, a branch of the 
Netherland Commercial Association, the Dutch 



268 

India Commercial Bank at Amsterdam, with 
branches in Insiilinde, the Colonial Bank, the Dutch 
East India Discount Association, the Association for 
administering Dutch Bonds, the Netherlands India 
Bond Bank, the Commercial Association at Batavia, 
agencies of the Chartered Bank of India, Australia, 
and China, of the Mercantile Bank of India, Lim- 
ited, of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking 
Corporation, of the International Credit and Com- 
mercial Association " Rotterdam," and other bank- 
ing institutions of less magnitude. 

In regard to the finances of Insulinde it may 
also be stated that, where the English Indies have 
periodically suffered on account of serious mone- 
tary disturbances, the Dutch Indies, thanks to 
statesmanlike legislation in regard to the circula- 
tion of paper money, and other wise measures, 
have been remarkably free from any such calamity. 

For the purpose of properly garrisoning so 
many and distant islands, and for the sake of en- 
forcing respect for law and order among so many 
semi-civilized and often savage tribes of the Indian 
Archipelago, a comparatively large standing army 
is needed. Till 1890 this army numbered less than 
thirty-four thousand soldiers, but since the garri- 
sons in Atjeh and on Lombok had to be consider- 
ably increased, the permanent strength of the army 
has been raised to forty thousand men, in which the 
natives outnumber the whites almost three to one. 

At the close of 1890 this army was composed as 
follows: Dutch, 10,000; other Europeans, 5000; 
Ambonese, 1075 '• Menadonese, 1079 '< Alfoers, 136; 
Javanese, 14,415 ; Sundanese, 909 ; Madurese, 552 ; 
Boegineseand Macassars, 385 ; Niassers, loi ; Tim- 
orese and Rotinese, 77 ; Malays, 98 ; Blacks, 57.

In former years considerable additions to the East 
India army were recruited from among the blacks of 
the West Coast of Africa, then a Dutch possession, 
but which in 1871 was ceded to the English, un- 
der condition that they were to respect the rights 
of the Dutch in the Indian Archipelago. 

Insulinde, " Island Empire," composed of such a 
considerable number of larger and smaller islands, 
the population of many of which have a great incli- 
nation for piracy, robbing wrecked vessels and 
crews, slave-hunting, and other unlawful practices, 
needs a very strong naval force in its waters. Be- 
sides many government vessels for coast and river 
surveys, the revenue service, police patrols, and 
other civic purposes, there is a naval force con- 
stantly kept in Insulinde, consisting of twenty-six 
ships of all sizes, and manned by three thou- 
sand ofificers and men, about eight hundred of whom 
are natives. In the expeditions against Atjeh and 
Lombok and in other engagements, the navy was 
most active, and either independently or in con- 
junction with the army rendered effective service in 
securing the success of the expeditions. At other 
times, again, ships had to be despatched for the 
purpose of punishing islands or kampongs for rob- 
bing stranded vessels, murdering boat crews, com- 
mitting depredations against neighboring islands, 
and even committing actual piracy. At other times 
war vessels had to be sent out for protecting the 
fishing rights of Dutch subjects, as well as for the 
purpose of protesting, and asserting the authority 
of the Dutch government, against the encroach- 
ments of the British North Borneo Company. This 
company, like the Chartered Company of South 
Africa, certain of the support of unscrupulous co- 



2 70 

lonial secretaries, has for years been constantly en- 
croaching upon acknowledged Dutch territory, and 
the Dutch, not being as strong as Russia or the 
United States, have continually been obliged to 
yield. 

When rehearsing the interminable list of Eng- 
lish outrages against the Dutch in every part of the 
globe, from the robbery of New Netherland down to 
the latest act of violence, under governmental aus- 
pices, by an English commercial association in the 
Indian Archipelago, the significant " No descend- 
ant of a Dutchman has any cause to favor the 
English," uttered by a prominent American of 
Dutch origin, needs no further explanation. 

Meagre and fragmentary, as well as superficial, 
as the information contained in the foregoing 
pages must necessarily be, yet it must be obvious 
to every reader that the government of the Dutch 
East Indies is neither an experiment in government, 
nor a ruthless despotism carried on for the benefit 
of a special class or race of people. It is a most 
statesmanlike adaptation to conditions and environ- 
ment. It is a thoroughly practical system, flexible 
enough for improvement, resting upon a scientific 
basis, born and developed from the intimate know- 
ledge and experience gained during a presence in 
the country of more than three centuries, and 
rooted as much as practicable in the character, the 
habits, the laws, the religions, the languages, the 
traditions, and the occupations, and even the tribal 
subdivisions, of the peoples whom it purposes to 
benefit.
